Missouri professor: Theft accusations were misunderstanding


COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — A University of Missouri professor says that his now-dropped charges related to the removal of artifacts from a national forest were due to miscommunication.

Professor R. Lee Lyman says he and two other researchers went on 2013 trip to the Umatilla National Forest and Wenaha-Tucannon Wilderness in southeastern Washington for "archaeological reconnaissance."

"They made some assumptions of what archaeological reconnaissance means, I made some assumptions about what that rule means and those assumptions were not the same," Lyman said Friday.
