[livejournal.com profile] eoforyth said that I should post the comment I made on [livejournal.com profile] unclechristo's FB post (because she doesn't use the Book of Faces)

Dear makers of archeology/history documentaries - I am quite able to remain interested without the BOOM OF DOOM sound effect before every new piece of information.
"And then they discovered something that no one expected" BOOOM! "A Roman coin"

Brian Biddle Having spent nine years working in archaeology, I can tell you that these are not sound effects added on film but actually occur on site when something of (probable) importance is uncovered. Most theories are that pockets of potential awesomeness surround the artifact in the soil which are released by piercing with the trowel (or bent screwdriver if you are American) The sound of the release brings people rushing from all over the site (and occasionally head office) to see what has been found. It rarely lives up to expectations!
