Perhaps not so much these days (though with Atkinson in mind they certainly were previously). But are not some in the archaeological profession still not guilty of supessing the release of information to their own (or their sponsor's/employer's) advantage?

There is certainly a certain amount of secrecy , "my sites " etc . and tardiness in writing up excavation reports etc . But that is different from actively supressing the ideas of others . For many of us the web is available if you can't get published or pay for vanity publishing , hence the explosion of ideas that would make Von Daniken blush .
