At the Acropolis in Athens, there’s a new museum that demonstrates how ancient sites can be kept alive. As you walk into the museum, you find yourself walking over an excavated ancient underground site covered by glass.
The other marvel of Athens is the subway system. At almost every other stop, you can see the excavated ancient sites — illuminated and behind glass — as you descend to the platform.
Should the prehistoric Tequesta village uncovered in downtown Miami be preserved? Yes. Look to the Greeks for ways to do it and still maintain commercial development.
