How many fossils have you accidentally “destroyed” in your career?

I want to get into fossil hunting by my number one fear is that because of my lack of experience excavating I’ll destroy numerous specimens before I learn not to.

How do you handle this conundrum?

Thank you for doing this Ann Williams. What’s the worst case of disrupting a archeological site you ever witnessed? I can’t imagine a worst caliber of person for an archeologist than a looter. Is there something worse than that? What historical context was lost?

Thank you for doing this AMA. Have you done experiments to test what happens if the battery is broken open? Does the radioactive become harmful and potentially become a cancerous agent? I wish you luck on your research and hope that you will make several break throughs in the future.
