The second edition of Archaeological Ethics is an invitation to an ongoing and lively discussion on ethics. In addition to topics such as looting, reburial and repatriation, relations with native peoples, and professional conduct, Vitelli and Colwell-Chanthaphonh have responded to current events and news stories. Twenty-one new articles expand this ongoing discussion into the realm of intellectual property, public outreach, archaeotourism, academic freedom, archaeological concerns in times of war, and conflicting values. These compelling articles, from Archaeology Magazine, American Archaeology, and Expedition are written for a general audience and provide a fascinating introduction to the issues faced every day in archaeological practice. The article summaries, discussion and research questions, and suggestions for further reading--particularly helpful given the vast increase in related literature over the last decade--serve as excellent teaching aids and make this volume ideal for classroom use.

No, it does not follow; for it could be that the practice was objectively right (or wrong) and that one or the other of them was simply mistaken. To make the point clearer, consider a very different matter.
