I read that miles of dirt have been eroded off the top of the soil here in the piedmont. Yet when archeologists dig artifacts they are always buried. 10,000 years is about a foot of accumulation. So if dirt is accumulating, how is it eroding at the same time?Wouldn't artifacts begin by being exposed? How do they get buried if erosion is happening? I am sorta confused by this. Things that are thousands of years old being buried is not what happens when you're shaving miles of sediments off a continent. How do geologists conquer the paradox? Hopefully not by ignoring it.
