Problems in the sub-sub-section of "Holocaust Archaeology"[edit]

This section seems to be entirely copy-pasted from someone's essay online. That goes against the encyclopedic style of Wikipedia. Furthermore, there is no inline citations in the text. I see that there are footnotes at the end of this section. However, the prose makes this section inappropriate enough to justify a removal. Feel free to write this section again.

It was added by Schifty8 on 11 December so pinging them to make them aware.
@Sociable Song: When you say "copy-pasted from someone's essay online", have you actually found the original source? I googled a few phrases at random and couldn't find anything. But if it is copied, we might need to delete the old versions as copyright violations.
If not, it seems a shame to lose so much content that could be improved. I'd suggest cleaning it up and moving it to a new article (e.g. Archaeology of the Holocaust) and writing a short summary here. – Joe (talk) 18:22, 18 January 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No, I didn't find an online source. The way it is written felt like it was an essay from someone's project. It even had narrative elements following one research team, as if it was a biography. Sociable Song (talk) 18:34, 18 January 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I second that! Sociable Song (talk) 18:34, 18 January 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Okay I've copied it over to Archaeology of the Holocaust and made a start at wikifying it. Any help is appreciated! – Joe (talk) 15:17, 20 January 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

List of Studies in Archeology[edit]

We should create a page of studies in the Archeology field. Doremon764 (talk) 01:26, 6 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Doremon764: What do you mean by studies? We have already have Subfields of archaeology, for example? – Joe (talk) 07:59, 6 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Paptilian, archaeological reports, images, library[edit]

Greetings, I've stumbled upon source data for Uncompahgre Complex, dealing with time periods, rock art, other stuff. Unfortunately, I am no archaeologist. The source data is stored on Commons, and I have User page User:Paptilian/Draft of the Outline of Colorado for the WikiProject: Colorado#Early Civilizations (this at wikipedia). I am also uploading some images, from the BLM Reports. I would like to input as much data into the WikiData Project, alas, I am novice. Would someone like to communicate? Watch this, (User:Paptilian/Rock Art West-Central Colorado) (at Commons). This commons user page I will data mine for WikiData, all under category archaeology, could someone at archaeology help me do this? I will open the Talk page at Rock Art West-Central Colorado at Commons.Paptilian (talk) 13:53, 12 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
