Historic Sites and Possible Worlds: Narrative-Building at Two Sites of African American History (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Patricia G Markert.

Kate Gregory and Andrea Witcomb refer to the narratives of place and history that are created when people visit heritage sites as "possible worlds" – the mental and physical spaces where history is then grappled with, conceptualized, and understood.  This paper considers two sites of African American history where archaeology has been conducted over the past five years, Timbuctoo, NJ and the Sellman Tenant House at SERC in Edgewater, MD, and explores the way narratives around these historic...


The Kentucky Ghost Ship and Ownership of Abandoned Watercraft (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Anne E. Wright. Emily Schwalbe.

Circle Line V, previously known as Celt, USS Phenakite, USS Sachem, and Sightseer, and colloquially known as the "Kentucky Ghost Ship", is a grounded vessel off the Ohio River in Northern Kentucky that has become a popular attraction with kayakers and hikers. In addition to its striking appearance, the site is popular due to its reported history. Designed as a private yacht, it subsequently served in both World Wars, as a research vessel for Thomas Edison, and even as the backdrop in a Madonna...


Lessons Learned: When the Public Speaks Out (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Leslie B. Kirchler-Owen.

Public involvement is a critical aspect of Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) evaluations, yet many times consultation with the public is treated as an afterthought. Achieving consensus and ensuring stakeholders are afforded the opportunity to provide meaningful input requires adequate time and resources. The lack of an effective program may create risk to achieving project goals. So, how does one engage the public? How can valuable input be solicited? Who are the...


Not All Archaeology for the Public is Public Archaeology (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Dante Angelo.

The concept of public archaeology has become ubiquitous since the last decade and, gradually, it seems to have been accepted as an important component of archaeological research. However, despite the wider popularization of the concept, its operationalization still poses challenges to archaeologists interested in surpassing the academic and professional sphere. Here, I reflect on the procedural guidelines and implications that public archaeology has recently attained and some of the challenges...


Shared Authority, Reflective Practice, and Community Outreach: Thoughts on Parallel Conversations in Public History and Historical Archaeology (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Kathryn L Sikes.

Over the past two decades, publications in public history, museum studies, oral history, historic preservation, and historical archaeology have often followed similar trajectories in seeking to serve a diversity of stakeholders connected to historic sites and promoting discussion of poorly documented and marginalized communities. This paper traces these parallel theoretical concepts and ethical considerations and examines how public archaeologies of the recent past may benefit from closer...


Simulating Engagement: Teaching Students about Stakeholders (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Kelly Jenks.

In my introduction to archaeology class, one of the most difficult topics to make my students understand and care about is the role of stakeholders in shaping archaeological research. This subject is simply not engaging in a lecture format. So, instead of lecturing about diverse perspectives, I ask students to participate in a simulated stakeholder meeting. The recent controversy over the development of fracking at Chaco Canyon provided the inspiration for my hypothetical scenario, in which...


The Urban Archeology Corps: A partnership between Groundwork Anacostia and the National Park Service (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Teresa Moyer.

The National Park Service has partnered with Groundwork Anacostia, a community-based environmental non-profit organization, on a heritage education work experience to introduce local youth to archeology. This paper draws on the outcomes of the work experience as a case study in federal/local partnerships in archeology outside a traditional field school model.
