Here’s the scenario, you’re the town mayor about to approve the site for the new community center. Before construction begins, the local university contacts you and tells you that three of its departments are interested in the site.
The paleontologist says they’re pretty sure that the site would reveal some interesting fossils about life millions of years ago.
The anthropologist says they’re pretty sure that the site would reveal some interesting details about human prehistory.
The archaeologist says they’re pretty sure the site will yield some interesting artifacts about human history.
There’s only time to let one of the departments carry out its studies, and the digs by one department will preclude that of any others. Which one do you approve?
