Letters We Loved
Memorable missives from readers
Where would we be without our loyal readers? No sooner had the first issue been mailed out than we began receiving letters back with compliments, criticisms and questions. Two hundred issues later, our readers are as engaged and outraged as ever. We love reading every single letter that comes in—and we hope you do, too. So, from “snail mail” to e-mail and Web Talkbacks, we present some of our most unforgettable Queries and Comments.
The Archaeologist of Dreams
Thank you, BAR! You take this midwestern American woman to places I shall never set foot in! With BAR I become the archaeologist that I have always wanted to be, sitting in the dirt/dust/heat with a small brush and pick in hand. Carefully digging up some ancient treasure, sure to set the archaeological community on their ear! I sit and read and dream of the smells and sounds of what it must be like to be on a dig.
