Annoying News: Georgia archaeologists find Confederate POW camp

This part interested me most...
The Associated Press: Georgia archaeologists find Confederate POW camp: "'What makes Camp Lawton so unique is it's one of those little frozen moments in time, and you don't get those very often,' said Dave Crass, Georgia's state archaeologist. 'Most professional archaeologists who ever thought about Camp Lawton came to the implicit conclusion that, because people weren't there very long, there wouldn't be much to find.'
Okay, so how arrogant do archaeologists have to be to just assume there is potentially nothing at a site? Do they want to find artifacts? Or are they more interested in the draw of the money?

This one sounds terribly suspicious that money deterred them from ever looking there.
