He was well aware that the head Mexican archaeologist was trying to destroy the validity of the site.For the sake of continuity, we will give this head Mexican archaeologist the name of "Dagwood." "Dagwood" had an immense amount of power."Dagwood" not only controlled what archaeology and what sites were excavated, but also controlled what was published about them.
Only thirty years later, after "Rusty" had become a well-known and respected Mexican archaeologist, and after "Dagwood" had passed away, did Rusty, feel comfortable enough to publish on the excavation he had done hundreds of feet above the Hueyatlaco site.
His report simply says he found "barren ground." All of this is important to understand to what point "Dagwood" would go to control what was said about the site of Hueyatlaco.
What we do wish to relate to our readers in this article are the steps that we took in parts of the investigation of this enigma.
The man who was in charge of this was a very powerful man in the Mexican archaeological community, and no one would confront him directly with these misdeeds.
The young archaeologist, located farther up the mountain that we have referred to, we will call "Rusty." "Rusty" was very intimidated by "Dagwood." He knew that his whole future lay within "Dagwood's" grasp, and he would be crushed if he did not do "Dagwood's" bidding.
Therefore, "Rusty" decided simply not to write a report on his site.Other people had found similar things to this site.Those collections lay in private hands, and under the control of the University of Puebla.However, I was guilty, along with many others, of laughing at the story of the "foolish archaeologists" who were finding the dates of early man at hundreds of thousands of years ago in the Americas."We simply know it could not be." So I was guilty of lack of judgment at the time, and later I felt guilty about this.And I had long ago decided that whether I believed her or not, that was irrelevant; the point was, at least she was standing her ground and saying, and practicing something she believed. He had found a very similar ancient site in California called "Calico." So the feasibility of what Virginia was claiming seemed to be true.
