Page 137, paragraph 2 read:

The wise traveller is prepared for all sorts of eventualities - a loose button, lost luggage, a broken limb, falling in love. The archaeologist is prepared for anything, because the past, like the future, may contain anything. There are a limited number of unexpected events that our traveller might encounter, but the archaeologist could discover anything. Even with a good knowledge of the site and of the civilisation under investigation, the archaeologist is prepared to be shocked. Shock is rare – most archaeological work is slow, steady, even dull – but it is always around the corner. (PROSE: Steal from the World)
