Take a moment and read the letter on this page from Joe Savokinas regarding last week’s vandalism at archeological dig in the Coxton section of Duryea.

We could not put any better the disgust and outrage all residents of Greater Pittston should feel at what happened at this location where for the past 22 years volunteers have painstakingly and lovingly toiled to unearth information not only about ancient people dwelling here but about ancient man in general.

Experts estimate the dig has uncovered artifacts dating to 8,000 years ago.

Perpetrators of this vandalism should be prosecuted to the fullest extent and we encourage anyone with information on them to contact authorities immediately.

This was a crime against us all.
