    Why all the very slow removal of sand/ earth. In the sea/ocean when excavating wrecks they use giant 'hoovers'. Why can't they use something similar with in-system filters.to catch larger solid items to speed up the process?

    This Triceratops was discovered just a minute's walk from our home. My kids would play in that field. Their school is adjacent to the field.
