He could have added Cologne's infamous corruption, or a generational struggle between "conservative" and "progressive" archaeologists, between the owners of the newspapers (who also sit on the boards of other museums, who might not like having competition), by archaeologists who do not like having their work questioned, etc. Unfortunately, you're right: the excavation probably will be filled in again (it had been started back in the 1950s) and paved over, and all this work will come to nothing: the artifacts will disappear because there is no place for a Jewish presence in the Romano-Catholic history of Cologne.
