I think archeology has come a long way. Scientists are very aware of the ethical issues. They are extremely careful in Pompeii and in other places. Sites are catalogued, referenced, and carefully treated.

Could you possibly explain in more detail what ethical issues you mean? Are you referring to the ethics of interfering with the remains of what were once living breathing humans regardless of the circumstances in which they died? I've visited Pompeii myself and read a fair bit about it but I haven't come across much by way of ethical matters in relation to the site.
