I scened this highspeed track with simple scenery partly because I was tired of people thinking that scenery tracks had to be uber-detailed in order to be "good". This track was in part an attempt to prove that simple scenery can be lots of fun.
In summer 2011 I opened up Archaeology and talked about it on the WRTL Livestream.

"That was great high speed scenery. I loved the shards of the pillars in the highspeed parts... Like frame-by-frame animation there actually. Great stuff."

"Awesome work! I was really impressed by your highspeed. I haven't seen any highspeed like that since Goliath. Really well-balanced stuff. There are few people who can do that that well. And the scenery was simple, but really awesome."

"The simple scenery was amazing. I enjoyed just as much as some very detailed scenery pieces."
