I could grumble that other people are not doing their bit.
I could point to other polluting countries.
I could wring my hands over the destruction of the rain forest.
But I can use 'a bag for life' when I go shopping.
I can switch off the TV instead of leaving it on 'standby'.
I can sort my rubbish so that it can be recycled.
I can do my bit for the planet.
And it is a bit like saving the archaeological record.
I could point the finger at those who do not appear to be protecting sites and monuments.
I could criticise government authorities for restricting the movement of archaeological materials across national frontiers.
I could even assert my right to collect archaeological material that has no previous history.
Or I could do my bit to save part of our universal cultural heritage.
I know which I would rather do.
