Archaeology has plenty of enemies—attackers and destroyers of artifacts. Most are microscopic (like bacteria) or invisible (like the wind and earthquakes).
Some are human: Looters and vandals have stolen artifacts and ruined sites since at least the time of ancient Egypt.
Luckily, Earth has a few “safe houses”—places where artifacts have lasted for thousands of years. Bacteria don’t get them because it’s too hot, too cold, or too dry. Wind and waves can’t reach them. Earthquakes, volcanoes, and hurricanes can’t hurt them—and neither can people.
Where are these safe havens?
