I just read this at archaeology magazine. I'll just post and let you read it:

September 11, 2006 - Land containing Catawba Indian villages and burial sites that was donated to the York County Culture & Heritage Museums in South Carolina has been sold to developers, despite archaeologists' pleas to have the land surveyed first. The sales agreement has no provisions to protect archaeological sites, although the Brian Goray, managing partner of Cherokee Investment Partners, says the residential and retail community on the banks of the Catawba River would be enhanced by archaeological digs.

It never stops, and no one seems to care.
