21st Century Commemoration and the Landscapes of an Absent Past: Remembering with Places in Santa Rosa, CA (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Margaret Purser.

Located in an overwhelmingly Democratic county, Santa Rosa's neighborhoods returned decidedly mixed results in the 2016 presidential race. Ensuing public discourse has invoked long-standing rhetoric about who "really belongs" in the community of immigrants, based on arrival time. But unlike Confederate monuments in the South, Santa Rosa’s historical narrative is less openly contested in its commemorative sites and monuments than it is essentially absent altogether. This historically silent...

The Antiquities Act
PROJECT Uploaded by: system user

This project includes documents related to the history and historical background of the Antiquities Act and its implementation during the century since its enactment. The Antiquities Act was signed into law in 1906 by President Theodore Roosevelt. The history of American conservation often is told in terms of legal milestones, and rightly so. An environmental activist working to expand a local park, a historic preservationist trying to save a cherished old building, a volunteer working on a...

The Archaeology of Art in Berlin (2015)

The physical spaces in Berlin and the artists that occupy those spaces are the focus, particularly in the ways that artists use and reuse of the physical environment of the post-Wall city and the surrounding environs in...

Community Archaeology in Action: The Partnership Between NOAA’s Monitor National Marine Sanctuary and the Battle of the Atlantic Research and Expedition Group (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Aaron Hamilton. William R. Chadwell.

In the three-plus years of its existence, the Battle of the Atlantic Research and Expedition Group has been engaged in a mutually-beneficial partnership with NOAA’s Monitor National Marine Sanctuary.  The Group, which is a part of the Institute of Maritime History, a 501(c)3 educational nonprofit corporation, is made up nearly exclusively of avocational archaeologists and historians all of whom are sport, or recreational, scuba divers.  Yet since its founding in late 2012, it has conducted or...

Connecting Rivers, Sea, & Land: Panhandle Maritime National Heritage Area (2019)

This is an abstract from the "The Public and Our Communities: How to Present Engaging Archaeology" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.

Although this region’s history plays an important part in the development of...

Digging into Digital: Using Technology to Interpret Archaeological Sites (2020)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jillian Domenici. Liz Neill.

This is an abstract from the session entitled "Reinterpreting New England’s Past For the Future" , at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. Technology provides a constantly increasing toolset for site interpretation, and one that has been utilized by museums and corporations alike in recent years. Each physical site hosts a unique constellation of content and history, and each site’s expansion into the digital realm should build upon that unique source material to...

The Foundation for American Public Archaeology: Section 3 of the Antiquities Act of 1906 (2006)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Francis McManamon.

The Antiquities Act of 1906 is not widely known, yet it is among the most important of American laws for archaeological and historical preservation, as well as for natural resource conservation. To the extent that the law is known, it is most commonly understood to be the authority by which the president can establish national monuments on public lands. This chapter describes another important aspect of the law: its position as the foundation for public archaeological and historic preservation...

From Slave Labor to Tourism Dollars: An autoethnographic look at the Highbourne Cay Plantation (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Ayondela McDole.

This project is an autoethnographic examination into the Highbourne Cay Plantation turned luxury resort set within the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. Using Pan-African theory with a Marxist lens, McDole sets out to outline the ways in which economic, social and political patterns on the cay have their roots in slavery discourse through its tourism labor. McDole explains how the social constructs of slave labor has a social impact on the island's economy and theorizes that while formal enslavement...

Going Paperless: The Digital Age of Archaeology (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Andrew J. Robinson.

Technology has played a large role in shaping how archaeology was conducted, especially towards the end of the 20th century. From telescopic transits to total stations, from map and compass to hand held GPS devices, and from film cameras to digital cameras are just a few example of how technology shaped archaeology. In the last decade or less a rapid change is occurring with technology and equipment becoming cheaper and more suffocated: smart phones and tablets replacing paper and brick GPS...

Having Our Cake…..and Sharing It - Access to Historic Shipwrecks in Malta (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Timmy Gambin.

This is an abstract from the "Current Research in Maritime Archaeology" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. One of the main principles of UNESCO’s Convention on Underwater Cultural Heritage contains the statement that the "convention encourages scientific research and public access." This is an idealistic philosophy fraught with impracticalities and other pitfalls. The fact that the vast majority of humans do not dive has pushed some scientists to...

The Landscapes of Modern Conservative Utopias in the United States: potentials for archaeological and spatial analysis (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Quentin P Lewis.

This paper introduces the session, and as a case study, explores utopias and utopian plans inspired by conservative thinking and principles as examples of spatial play and landscape experimentation. The growth of the internet has allowed for the proliferation of like-minded communities as well as the broadcasting of political ideologies and proposals. During the 2000s, anti-government enthusiasm proliferated into a number of proposals for separatist communities within the United States, founded...

Not Dead Yet: The Surviving Voice of Wooden Shipbuilding (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Nathaniel Howe.

In the Pacific Northwest there is still significant overlap between archaeological material and extant cultural niches.  This overlap enables ethnography and living history to privide critical insight.  For nautical archaeologists, the enigmatic details of early west coast ship construction may be explained by the handful of shipwrights who still work on the region's commercial wooden fishing fleet today.  These tradesmen, however, are the last of their kind.  The wooden fleet is dwindling and...

Radicalizing African Diasporic Foodways When Academia is Not Enough (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Peggy Brunache.

The process of globalization and migration of Africans and African descent communities has made soul food and other African diasporic foodways very popular in Britain. The mass consumption of music and movies, and even fast food that celebrate these culinary traditions is creating a false sense of historical and culture knowledge. Furthermore, archaeology that centers on the legacy of transatlantic slave trade is still a highly marginalized area of study in British academia. Thus, an...

DOCUMENT Full-Text Francis McManamon.

The Antiquities Act of 1906 is among the most important of American conservation and preservation laws.
