Excerpt from Archæologia Nova Cæsarea, 1909, Vol. 3 T ime applies to human history only, and when it is to be applied to what we know as ancient human history, the greatest caution is called for, as many have found to their sorrow, when the facts of the earth have calmly contradicted the vagaries of dreamers. Nature has never recognized what man knows as time. Always existent, but ever changing, her career extends backward throughout the eternity of the past, as it will continue throughout the eternity of the future. Man's career, as yet, is but as a fleeting shadow on the surface of the sea, and only anapproximate date need concern the archaeologist who eu deavors to trace this career. To endeavor to date it as we do that which has happened within recorded human history, to speak of years, centuries, or even milleniums, is the bane of archaeological research Only the most indefinite phrases, as old anc very old, should be used. It is the business only of the archaeologist to trace the sequence of event, to arrange in proper order, if he can, the sadly mixed, dis jointed and exasperatingly confused facts and fragments thereof. And set thein forth again in orderly array. This is his proper work. No cherished theory, no adherence to long - settled convictions of one's days of ignorance should deter him from demonstrating, when opportunity affords, that this is older than that, and the invention of a simple form preceded the elaboration of a complex one. Who, standing in the shadow of a patriarchal oak, will attempt to Count its leaves, or trace the outlines of its tiniest twigs, or follow each sinuosity of its wrinkled bark? It is the tree as a whole that bids us pause, and there is ever enough to excite our wonder and call forth our admiration without asking the question, when was the first acorn evolved from some Quercian ancestor? Enough to know there are oaks, and for long have been; enough to know there are men, and for ages long have been, and, as. A fellow feeling makes us wondrous kind, at times, it also makes some of us wondrous curious at other times; so, to inquire into the career of those who preceded us is. Not unnatural, nor, perhaps, without some use. T here is always satisfac tion in the possession of a truth, even if we can make no special use of it. Certainly we never know when a truth may come into play. Man is an incident in the progress of events, and, as such, is of some interest; but, if we associate him with time absolute or time relative, as. We must an. Individual and his period of existence, we are led into a. Trackless wilderness, from which there is no escape.

Excerpt from Archaeologia Nova Caesarea No It has been maintained that the term Archæology docs not I apply to North, Central or South America, but that this considerable portion of the earth's habitable surface was not a scene of human activity until Asia, Europe and Africa and the isles of the South Seas had been so long populated that humanity was an old and not very creditable story, and then about the dawn of what we know as the historic period some wandering unfortunates from other lands found some one of the three Americas, and finally drifted into the other two. According to these authors, and they are about all who have given attention to the subject, the history of America is about the heaviest, dreariest, most somnolent matter ever preserved in print, until Columbus made his discovery, or possibly from the supposed visit of the Norseman, four or five centuries earlier. All this may be true, but, happily for those archaeologically inclined, the probability of its so being is still an open question, and, despite the earnest, and we hope sincere, efforts of the ethnologists to modernize every phase of the subject, the thought will persist in coming to the fore, when fieldwork is in progress, can all this be within the range of history, or, at most, on the shadowy border of it, just prior to Columbus sighting land in the Antilles?

Excerpt from Archaeologia Nova Caesarea, 1907 It is scarcely complimentary to the average intelligence that those who testify in the role of experts should offer negative evidence as of greater value than that which is positive. Unsuccessful themselves in the finding of arti facts in place, after careful search - not only the asserted search, but the care attending it, problematical - they would feign blot out of existence, by a toss of the head or scratch of the pen, all evidence of man's antiquity. Success has attended these unscrupulous efforts far more generally than should have been the case, or would have been, had the sub j ect been treated honestly, as questions purely geological or historical are supposed to be.
