Archaeotomy - New word?

Speaking of the foundation removal, I think I may have accidentally stumbled onto a new word. In my appeal for help to break up the concrete foundation which was also an offer to let other people take a turn at operating the jackhammer, I got creative with my etymology and coined a new term for was is, essentially, plotting destruction.

Archaeotomy: the science of studying historical objects to discover the best way to destroy, explode or remove them.

I googled it this morning. Zero documents. I'm surprised, given that it's from two fairly commonly used latin/greek roots. Nothing in Webster either but that's less surprising. But if Google indexes my journal soon I could quite possibly (and briefly) be the only page on that hit list. The mind *boggles*.
