We see years of collecting from around the southwest, so the redistribution of pounds of sherds, manos, metates, tools, etc. would be quite an undertaking. This is why I posed this problem. Can you imagine foking with the Archies by unknowingly placing stuff maybe more than a hundred miles from where it came from?
Well, considering that Jeddito Black-on-Yellow has been found south of Phoenix in a legitimate excavation, it wouldn't be awful.
In all seriousness, if you want to redress ancient sherds I can give you a hand. I am pretty decent at IDing in the field. With the sherd in hand (or multiple photos in front of me) and my resources, I do pretty dang good. That could narrow down where you could "redistribute".
