Alternative Mexico: a Mobile Application to Preserve Contemporary Heritage Values (2016)

DOCUMENT [ID: 404341] Sandra L. Lopez Varela.

“Alternative Mexico” is a mobile application drawing from the need to preserve and promote contemporary heritage resources that are of great value to its citizens. After more than a century of infrastructure building and promotion of urban lifeways to become a modern country, the experience has resulted in the appropriation of modern spaces and behaviors by Mexico’s citizens, with the inevitable creation of new heritage values. These new heritage resources oppose the national definition of...


Archaeological Commitment to Participation: Discovering the Local to International El Pilar Community (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 403590] Anabel Ford.

The El Pilar community is dynamic and includes the most proximal villages, the general communities of Cayo and Peten, the nations of Belize and Guatemala, and from there the greater international community interested in the culture and nature of the tropics. From its first archaeological recognition in the 1980s, El Pilar was destined to be play a role in the conservation and development of the Maya forest. Large and imposing, with monuments straddling the political line that separates Belize...


Archaeological tourism and social values, a case study in China (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 404671] Qian Gao.

Today the increasing commercialization of cultural heritage draws archaeology and tourism into ever-closer contact. With the fast development of tourism, archaeological sites are utilized for their multiple potentials as revenue generators, public education providers, national identity promoters, and many other roles. It should be noted that these potentials are defined by the various values that a society attributes to its archaeological heritage. That is to say the values of archaeological...


Archaeologists and the Pedagogy of Heritage: Preparing Scholar-Practitioners for Complex and Changing Heritage Work (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 403837] Phyllis Messenger.

Heritage studies and public history are the publicly engaged and community-accountable practices of historical scholarship, whether it is based in archival research, archaeology, architecture and preservation, landscape studies, or other related areas. Archaeologists share a commitment to public interpretation, education, and preservation with these other disciplines, and graduate education must reflect this reality. Today’s scholar-practitioners need to understand the connections and common...


Archaeology and Heritage in the United States (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 396050] William Graves. Sarah Herr.

In this paper we consider how the State, through law and practice, affects United States archaeologists’ abilities to conduct innovative, humanistic research in the context of cultural resource management (CRM) and may become an impediment to inclusive heritage-management practices. CRM is, perhaps, best known for its accumulation of collections and data and its ability to answer middle-range-theory questions that remain broadly ecological in scope. Here, we consider how CRM can better...


Archaeology in a Revolutionary Town: Multi-Temporal Heritage Narratives at the McGrath Farm, Concord, Massachusetts (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 434678] Travis G. Parno. Andrew J. Koh. Sarah Schofield-Mansur.

The town of Concord, Massachusetts played a critical role in the American Revolutionary War and will forever be linked to this momentous military conflict. While this connection is understandable, Concord has a rich history of indigenous, European, and American life dating back thousands of years. The McGrath Farm site is an excellent example of this complicated and storied past. Once a portion of a farm owned by prominent Revolutionary War figure Col. James Barrett, the McGrath Farm reflects...


The Archaeology of the People’s Century? (2013)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 428253] David Sables.

The 20th century has widely been portrayed in the British media as the people’s century. This paper will examine the part played by archaeologists in the formation of this idea which, in my opinion, not only fails to reflect many of the stresses within British society, but also underplays the value of significant areas of British heritage. The result is that large sections of the recent past are seen as something that is ‘best not talked about’ to the public (Faull, pers comm, 2011) and the...


Archaeology, Memory and Community: Widening Engagement with Historical Archaeology (2013)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 428610] Paul Belford.

Telford was created as a 'new town' in the 1960s in a former industrial area, partly to regenerate what was perceived to be a derelict landscape. The new town initially had a divisive effect on long-established local communities. This paper describes an ongoing project which seeks to heal some of these divisions by working with local communities and other stakeholders to explore some of the area's neglected archaeology and heritage. The project has evolved from a 'top down' approach to a more...


Archaeology, Shadowed Pasts, and the Making of Heritage (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 433742] Bonnie J. Clark.

As Laurajane Smith contents, heritage is not a series of sites, but of practices. Practioners of contemporary archaeology are lodged firmly in that practice, participating through the data we uncover, the stakeholders we engage, and even the media attention we draw to particular historic events but not others.  The archaeology of Amache, the site of a World War II-era Japanese American internment camp, is a long-term, community-based project focused on a past that has often been muted in...


At Home in the City: reflections on theoretical and methodological approaches to contemporary homeless heritage (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 434492] Rachael R M Kiddey.

The Homeless Heritage project (2009-2013) was a collaborative public archaeology project that sought to document contemporary homelessness from the perspective of homeless people in two British cities, Bristol and York. This paper draws on case studies from the Homeless Heritage project and expands upon a paper given at SHA 2013 (Leicester) when fieldwork was in its concluding phase. Three years on, this paper reflects upon the theoretical and methodological challenges that were present and...


Çatalhöyük and Localized Universality: the challenge of sustaining heritage post-UNESCO (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 397021] Caitlin Curtis. Peter Biehl.

UNESCO has long set the example for heritage practice, with site practitioners worldwide motivated to achieve the nearly universally desired World Heritage Site (WHS) status to help preserve and sustain their sites. However, the idealized goals espoused by UNESCO, a global organization, are inherently universalizing, which can render them incompatible with the particularities of each local setting. One illustrative example is Çatalhöyük, Turkey. Since being granted UNESCO WHS status in 2012,...

Beyond the Four-Letter Word: Heritage Management and Public Archaeology at Fort Vancouver (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 395406] Douglas Wilson.

Heritage managers of complex archaeological sites are more highly successful when there is a commitment to on-going public involvement and the integration of multiple communities in the site’s archaeological research and site interpretation. The public archaeology program at Fort Vancouver is highlighted as a model for integrating traditional archaeology education activities with site-specific archaeological research, the development of archaeology-influenced interpretation, and the development...

Can Economic Concepts Be Used To More Effectively Raise Awareness And Value Of Underwater Cultural Heritage? (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 434792] Chris Underwood.

During the past twenty years, the UK among other countries has undergone a period of urban and social regeneration. As part of this process maritime environments including historic ships have been integrated into harbour and coastal redevelopments, with tourism and social wellbeing considered key components. But, has underwater cultural heritage (UCH) formed a part? The most obvious is the Mary Rose along with smaller collections housed in larger institutions. Acknowledging that innovative...

The Castro Colonies Heritage Association's Living History Center: An Introduction to the Archaeological Project (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 435329] Ruth Van Dyke.

In the 1840s, empresario Henri di Castro brought Alsatian settlers from the Rhine Valley to south Texas, where the new arrivals joined established Mexican families, German immigrants, and displaced Apache.  Today, the Castro Colonies Heritage Association (CCHA) is transforming a 19th-century property into a Living History Center, intended as a focal point for Alsatian heritage tourism. In partnership with the CCHA, Binghamton University archaeologists have completed three excavation seasons at...


Catoctin Furnace: Academic Research Informing Heritage Tourism (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 434489] Elizabeth A. Comer.

For more than 42 years, the Catoctin Furnace Historical Society, Inc. has maintained heritage programs in the village of Catoctin Furnace. These activities balance the needs of the ongoing village lifestyle with those of the received visitor experience. Updating traditional seasonal events while adding leisure amenities involves constantly balancing funding sources and message.  However, the tourism experience must be rooted in solid academic research.  Current research on the African-American...


A Chained Melody: Queering Ceramic Industries in 19th century South Carolina (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 403634] Shawn Fields. Jamie Arjona.

During the antebellum period, ceramic industries began to sprout up across South Carolina’s agricultural landscape. In the Edgefield district, located near the South Carolina-Georgia border, a number of family-owned kilns contracted enslaved laborers from nearby plantations to mass-produce stoneware for sale throughout the Southeast. Innovative alkaline glaze technologies became the foundation for experimental ceramic traditions and styles. A long-held local fascination with these ceramic...


Challenges in Integrating Archaeology into Late-Period Preservation Projects: An Example from Menorca, Spain (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 397526] Ricardo Elia. Amalia Perez-Juez.

The island of Menorca, Spain, belonged successively in the 18th century to Spain, England, France, again England, and finally Spain. During this period, the British constructed their first purpose-built naval hospital on Isla del Rey, a small island in Mahon Harbor. To date, heritage-related efforts on Isla del Rey have focused on the architectural restoration of the hospital buildings, as well as on the development of exhibit spaces. In 2013, Boston University started a collaboration with the...


Commemoration and Contestation: New methodologies in archaeological heritage interpretation at the W.E.B. Du Bois Homesite  (2013)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 428653] Honora Sullivan-Chin.

Today, the former homeplace of William Edward Burghardt (W.E.B.) Du Bois is a National Historic Landmark administered by the University of Massachusetts Amherst, which assumed stewardship of the property in 1987 after more than seventy years of relative abandonment. Nondescript and overgrown, the space appears to be little more than a vacant parking lot and accompanying sign alongside Route 23 in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Indeed, ongoing efforts to commemorate Du Bois and to interpret the...


A Community Approach to Data Recovery Investigations at the Dimond Knoll Site, Harris County, Texas (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 396651] Jason Barrett. Linda Gorski. Richard Weinstein. Roger Moore.

The Dimond Knoll Screening Project has been one of the most successful Public Outreach efforts undertaken to date by the Texas Department of Transportation’s Archeological Studies Branch. Excavation of this small floodplain mound in northwestern Harris County was completed 2012, revealing a record of regular visitation by mobile foraging groups across nearly ten millennia. Once the upper sediments of the knoll were extensively sampled through meticulous hand excavation, the remaining sandy...


Concealed Clothing or Cold Climate? The Discovery of 103 Articles of Historic Clothing in an Iron-Worker’s Cottage (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 435541] Elizabeth A. Comer. Kathy Abbott.

During restoration of a ca.1817 worker’s house in Catoctin Furnace, Maryland, 103 articles of clothing were discovered inserted between the eaves. The heavily worn and patched clothing for men, women and children includes both current fashion and utilitarian articles. An extraordinary discovery in its own right, the dataset is augmented by the recovery of over 200 buttons, as well as pins, needles, and shoes from excavation beneath the floorboards of the house.
