There's collecting the same information and then trying to pass off others information as your own. There is no harm in crediting the archaeology discord, which is clearly where you got this from. 

 

 

Just out of interest, I ran a similarity check.

I also checked - your screenshots are exactly the same as the Arch discord.

As I said. No harm in posting this. Just don't pretend it's yours.

Just for my clarification's sake, you're definitively saying right now that even though this posted is formatted exactly the same as the Arch discord post (with the same words in bold, in underline), it matching yours with a 94.5% accuracy, all the screenshots you've used being exactly the same as the Arch discord, you're saying that you've made this yourself?
