Photos of abandoned buildings show the processes of decay and ruination, from vandalism to the weather. What can Detroit teach archaeologists about the interpretation of material evidence...

An American Dilemma: The Archaeology of Race Riots Past, Present, and Future (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT Edward Gonzalez-Tennant.

At the center of Myrdal’s An American Dilemma is the understanding that cycles of violence continue to oppress African Americans.

This paper charts how this cycle of violence has transformed through time by drawing upon the author’s ongoing work in Rosewood, Florida and elsewhere. Although an archaeology of American race riots...

As one means of commemorating the anniversary of this important statute, this article...


The Antiquities Act and National Monuments: A Progressive Conservation Legacy (1999)

DOCUMENT Hal K. Rothman.

The Antiquities Act of June 8, 1906, may be the most important piece of preservation legislation ever enacted by the United States government. Although its title suggests a limited focus on archeological matters, in practice the law became a cornerstone of preservation in the federal system. By allowing Presidents extraordinary power to preserve cultural and “scientific” features on public land, it created a mechanism for rapid decisionmaking concerning the disposition of federal lands. The...


The Antiquities Act and the Acreage Debate (2006)

DOCUMENT Frank Norris.

June 8 of 2006 marked the centennial of the Antiquities Act —a law that, by any standards, is a landmark in the history of U.S. land management policies. There was a sweeping application of this act in the late 1970s that reserved a huge amount of acreage, and generated as large an amount of controversy. Questions arose, therefore, about the roots of that controversy, and whether the actions taken regarding Alaska were unique. The Antiquities Act’s second section provides for the U.S. president...

DOCUMENT The Wilderness Society.

The Antiquities Act: The First Hundred Years of a Landmark Law (2006)

DOCUMENT David Harmon. Francis McManamon. Dwight T. Pitcaithley.

The history of American archaeology, conservation, and historic preservation often is told in terms of legal milestones, and rightly so. An environmental activist working to expand a nearby park, a historic preservationist trying to save a cherished old building, a volunteer working on a national wilderness campaign, an archaeologist investigating an ancient village site in advance of reservoir construction—all are working from a solid foundation of statutory authorities that, law by law, have...


Approaching Eyri: Photographs, Memos and Ruin Memories  (2013)

Citation DOCUMENT Þóra Pétursdóttir.

The use of photography and the meaning of the photograph in our dealings with modern ruins and ruination has been a much discussed topic in workshops, seminars and less formal contexts during the four year life of the Ruin Memories project. This discussion has often been driven by a critique of how photography has come to dominate our approaches, hinting that it may be an "easy way out" – touching the surface of things instead of properly digging them for knowledge. With reference to my work...
