    It's been done everywhere just bulldozed and built or paved over and the history is pretty much forgotten about.
    Just something we have to deal with as there's not much we can do about it.
    I hear you nwpa. Like the highways around the Gettysburg area all the way into the Shenandoah valley. New developments going in everywhere, places that are sacred ground holding the blood of patriots. A great example is George Washington’s headquarters in Morristown NJ. Ah, the price of progress.

    Don't it always seem to go
    That you don't know what you've got til its gone
    They paved paradise
    And put up a parking lot

    They took all the trees
    And put 'em in a tree museum
    And they charged the people
    A dollar and a half to seem 'em

    No no no
    Don't it always seem to go,
    That you don't know what you've got
    Til its gone
    They paved paradise
    And put up a parking lot

    Hey farmer farmer
    Put away the DDT
    I don't care about spots on my apples
    Leave me the birds and the bees
    Please!

    Don't it always seem to go
    That you don't know what you've got
    Til its gone
    They paved paradise
    And put up a parking lot
    Hey, now they paved paradise
    To put up a parking lot
    Why not?
    At least they took away the DDT.

    Joni Mitchel was right.
    They paved paradise
    And put up a parking lot

    they did exactly that in the 1980's in a county near me. The oldest home in Dekalb county Georgia was moved and they put up a three story hotel and the exact spot of the old home was under the new parking lot. Kind of hard to metal detect and recover from 8 inches of asphalt. Good metal detecting sites in fast growing suburban cities like Atlanta are doomed to be developed. And it can happen fast. I had a great site with three old home sites on the property. It was on my list to detect but waited two months and drove by one day and trees all gone and the hilly site was leveled out flat by a fleet of big yellow earth movers. No chance now. Now when I find an old home site on undeveloped property I try to move a little faster.

    There are actually a few guys down there that have tight relationships with the major construction and grading companies around charleston that actually pay to have the dirt hauled to their properties where it is spread out and searched.
