I know where they are based, Yuri.  I also know that when people talk of 
Asian they don't usually mean Hittite or the area usually referred to in 
archaeology as the Ancient Near East.  But then, I'm sure you knew what I 
meant when I wrote this, and just used it as an excuse for one of your 
emotional outbursts.

Neat twist, Yuri. You've complained that I haven't read enough books, 
you've said you've read more books on theory than I have.  But you've 
never seen me lecture anyone about how many books about archaeology I've 
read, although I plead guilty to challenging your claim that you'd read 
more books on archaeology than I have.
