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.
Once "Dagwood" had stopped the excavations at the Hueyatlaco site, he realized that he was not finished.
He realized that he had to control more information and more knowledge.
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.
One of them related to us the story that the head Mexican archaeologist had come to him and told him that since his site, that he was excavating, was several hundred feet up the mountain from the site at which these people were excavating, that he should claim that he had found some more artifacts at his site, and that artifacts from his site probably had washed down to their level in ancient times. After the death, some thirty years later, of the "head honcho" of Mexican archaeology, this now-famous archaeologist published a paper simply claiming that he had found nothing.
To him, that was very important, from the standpoint that he could report honestly for the first time in three decades what he had really found.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.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.Therefore, he sent the Mexican army to seize those collections, also; and they also disappeared.
