For more than ten years now we are witnessing a steady decline of social interest in the outcome of archaeological excavations. The reason for this situation seems to lie in an excessive demand for research, a far-going commercialisation of science, an administrative approach to archaeology, insufficient time for reflections on work methods, and the absence of an adaptation of research methods to rapidly progressing computer techniques. The nostalgic- Romantic dimension of archeology is becoming increasingly distant from dynamically developing reality. Another equally important error committed by the archaeologists is the reduced rate of publishing the results of their work and an almost total lack of popular publications. The large number of excavation proposals restrains enthusiasm for scholarly investigations, while the scientific vocabulary of written studies reduces the range of potential readers. Insufficient time and a constant quest for new tasks separate researchers from those members of the public who are interested in the outcome of archaeological studies. This small part of society continues to decrease owing to the mistakes made by the archaeologists themselves. Once it becomes reduced to a bare minimum, we shall be able to establish yet another Society of Polish Archaeologists and exchange our knowledge in the manner of stamp collectors.
