    No; not completely insane. This is just another way of digging for them. Some scientists use little trowels to dig with, while others, less patient scientists, prefer to take larger bites at it with 2000lb bombs.

    When the Taliban blew up the Buddhas of Bamyan they were just being sloppy in their archaeological excavation. Another case of professional differences in excavating technology.
