Destruction date[edit]

There are a few issues here. First, Wikipedia articles must be based on scholarly sources. You might have your opinion, and you might even be right, but that is not relevant for Wikipedia; see WP:Verify. Second, the only two scholarly sources that I know of for the archaeological date are Voigt and Muscarella (Keenan does not debate archaeology); neither of those cites the other (perhaps due to their close timing); so, based on available scholarly sources, all that can be said is that the archaeology-based date is disputed. Third, for radiocarbon, there is no scholarly source that I know of that disputes Keenan's work; hence the article should base its discussion on that. Fourth, for dendrochronology, there is no scholarly source that disputes the work of Kuniholm as reported by DeVries et al. (Keenan seems to have disputed this on his personal web site, but I do not believe that counts as a scholarly source).  81.158.197.6 (talk) 14:05, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

There's a lot of "I know" and "I believe" here for someone who isn't even logged in. The gist of the debate over dates, reflected in Voigt and in Muscarella, would certainly be a welcome addition. That there is debate is less fascinating for the Wikipedia reader. --Wetman (talk) 21:01, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

copyright issues[edit]

I have put a new version of the page at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Gordium/Temp
The new version is nowhere near as good as the old version, but at least it should avoid the problems with copyright. Hopefully, someone will improve it.

Edits for accuracy, to expand the article, and to add references. There is much, much more that could be said about this fascinating site.E. S. V. Leigh (talk) 05:30, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

Philadelphia: Architectural Conservation Laboratory[edit]

Hasn't anybody else published anything suitable for the "Further reading" section? User:Pennconlab has made some WP:COI additions and I was going to trim these, but there wouldn't be much left if I had. Views, before I have another go? --Old Moonraker (talk) 07:33, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
