Are you joking? The stuff is constantly being unearthed. If you travel to certain places, you’ll find that there are digs going on all the time; I have seen such in Turkey, Greece and Italy. The news hits at certain times but the work is ongoing.
As someone else said on another board,
“What was ‘common’ about it?”
The point is that the media always seem to roll out stories like these at Christmas and Easter.
