Affording Archaeology: How the Cost of Field School Keeps Archaeology Exclusive (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Elizabeth Hannigan. Laura Heath-Stout.

This is an abstract from the "What Have You Done For Us Lately?: Discrimination, Harassment, and Chilly Climate in Archaeology" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. In response to the contemporary critiques about discrimination and inequality within the archaeological academic community, many individuals and advocacy groups have suggested field school scholarships as one tactic in promoting diversity in the field. In this paper, we will explore the...

Ancient DNA Analyses of Dental Calculus from Plains Village Collections (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Cara Monroe. Paul Sandberg. Rita Austin. Marc Levine. Cecil Lewis.

More than a generation since the implementation of NAGPRA, many museums continue forward with the process of repatriation. This creates a unique opportunity for active and collaborative engagement of Native American communities in both the inception and implementation of scientific research. Biomolecular analyses of dental calculus can be an attractive research avenue because they address questions of mutual interest to tribes and scientists, and the sampling techniques are non-destructive to...

Archaeological and Digital Ethics as a Critical Component of Digital Literacy (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Mary Compton.

This is an abstract from the "Capacity Building or Community Making? Training and Transitions in Digital Archaeology" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. While digital literacy typically refers to one’s ability to utilize and navigate various digital platforms, recent literature demonstrates a need to broaden our framing beyond the development of practical skills to include understanding the impact of those technologies in contemporary society. This is...


Archaeologists as Indian Advocates? Lessons from Skinner, the Little-Weasel, and Moorehead, the Indian Commissioner (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only April Beisaw.

This is an abstract from the "Sins of Our Ancestors (and of Ourselves): Confronting Archaeological Legacies" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. Archaeologists who study the Native past have a responsibility to the Native present. But our academic training does little to prepare us for advocacy work. Personal interests, ethics, and the precariousness of employment often dictate what can be done. Doing nothing is easier and safer than speaking out, but...

Archaeology and the End of Empire in Nigeria: Learning from the History of Late Colonial Archaeology at Ile-Ife (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Tomos Evans.

This is an abstract from the "African Archaeology throughout the Holocene" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. At the city of Ile-Ife (Nigeria) in 1953, three foreign archaeologists (Bernard Fagg, AJH Goodwin, and William Fagg), with the permission of the Oni of Ife, conducted several months of fieldwork in the old city. With the aim of uncovering evidence relating to Ile-Ife’s early industries (including exquisite brass and terracotta artworks), they...


Archaeology and the Green Power Initiative: Reconciling Large Renewable Energy Development Projects and the Protection of Cultural Resources (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jordon Loucks.

This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. The development of utility scale renewable energy projects is a necessity to curtail our environmental footprint. The utilization of solar and wind power sources to provide stable, affordable, and ethically sound alternatives to the resource extraction-based energy production practices of yesterday is quickly sweeping the American landscape. However, with...

The Archaeology of the People’s Century? (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only 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...

Bad Behavior and Good Guidelines: Applying the Society for American Archaeology’s Principles of Archaeological Ethics to the Performance of Archaeology in Videogames (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only L. Meghan Dennis.

Within videogames, archaeology is often not itself a focus, but provides a flavor or character-defining style based on pre-existing stereotypes of the discipline as presented in other forms of popular culture. This frequently results in utilizing the practice of archaeology as a form of secondary content, designed to provide a financial or game-play bonus to the player character, while allowing access to objects of cultural patrimony and license to commodify those objects. Through an application...


The Benefits of Educating Young Professionals about Archaeological Conservation (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Emily A Williams. Lisa Young.

While archaeological conservation is still a relatively new field, it is not much younger than the field of historical archaeology.  Literature searches mention "conservation" or preservation in many of the text books used to educate and train archaeology students in this country and archaeologists agree about the necessity of conserving finds.  Yet courses in archaeological conservation remain strangely absent from the curriculum of many of the well-established and prominent archaeology...


Bioarchaeological Ethics and Considerations for the Deceased (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jayne-Leigh Thomas. Krystiana Krupa.

This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. The last few decades have brought changes to archaeology through the establishment of ethics codes, repatriation, and community-based, participatory research. However, established ethical codes are often unfamiliar to researchers and the treatment of human remains continues to be unequal, while scientific justifications for doing bioarchaeological research are...


Bioarchaeology and Bioethos (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Pamela Geller.

This is an abstract from the "The Future of Bioarchaeology in Archaeology" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. The future of bioarchaeology requires a robust sub-disciplinary bioethos. The concept refers to consolidation of a habit that gives rise to moral, normative practices related to exhumation, documentation, analysis, and posthumous treatment of dead bodies. Conversations in bioethics—about consent, anonymity, vulnerable populations, legislation...


Bioarchaeology and Genome Justice: What Are the Implications for Indigenous Peoples? (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Rebecca Tsosie.

This is an abstract from the "Social Justice in Native North American Archaeology" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. This paper examines the theme of "discovery," used in relation to Indigenous lands and peoples to designate the respective claims of Indigenous peoples and the European peoples that colonized North America. In particular, I look at the domain of "bioarchaeology" and the construct of "genome justice" to explore how DNA science attempts...


Bioarchaeology Legacy Collections: Varying Perspectives, Perceptions, and Challenges (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Laura Van Voorhis. Ellen Lofaro. Neill Wallis. Donna Ruhl.

This is an abstract from the ""Re-excavating" Legacy Collections" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. Legacy collections can prove quite valuable in research, but may bring with them additional ethical and legal concerns and challenges. Known for the intricate wooden effigy carvings on a mortuary platform above a charnel pond, the site of Fort Center, 8GL13, also contains more than 24 earthworks dating from 800 BCE to 1700 CE. This paper explores the...


BOOM BABY!: Archaeology and the ethics of edutainment (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Charles Ewen.

Archaeologists in the United States have been horrified by the debut of new reality shows featuring treasure hunters looting sites for fun and profit.  Most troubling was that one of these shows, "Diggers", was the brainchild of the National Geographic Society, long time supporters of archaeology.  Meetings with National Geographic have shown them willing to compromise to make the shows more ethical if they could still be profitable. However, the real question is, how willing are...


Close to Home: bringing heritage management graduate programs to descendant communities (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Peter Mills.

Hawaiʻi’s state regulations require principal investigators in the 26 active archaeological consulting firms to possess "a graduate degree from an accredited institution in archaeology, or anthropology, with a specialization in archaeology, or an equivalent field." Because there have been few opportunities for appropriate local graduate training, many heritage management specialists are hired from regions outside of Hawaiʻi and begin with little background or connection to descendant...


Collecting Costa Rican and Nicaraguan Art: On the Case of Enrique Vargas Alfaro, Dealer (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Laura Wingfield.

In the mid 20th century crates full of Costa Rican antiquities made their way into the United States through the diplomatic immunity of Enrique Vargas Alfaro. Paul Clifford, then a business man in Miami and later donor and curator at the Duke University Museum of Art, purchased works from Vargas in addition to procuring his own pieces from Peru. Clifford's friend Bill Thibadeau of Atlanta and a few of his neighbors enjoyed "block parties" to open the latest Vargas crate and then to divvy up the...
