About National Geographic:
National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure. Through their world-class scientists, photographers, journalists, and filmmakers, Nat Geo gets you closer to the stories that matter and past the edge of what's possible.
In fact, many of the items behind the glass at your favorite museum were most likely found in a midden or ancient dump. Even today, archaeologists believe that trash reveals more about the lives we actually lead than, say, a journal.
As far as archaeologists are concerned, one man’s trash is indeed another man’s treasure. So the next time you throw that Hot Pocket wrapper in the trash, just remember: It belongs in a museum!
