Market Economy Solutions to Funding
Traditional funding structure to support archaeological research consists of grants from public or private organization or donations from individuals, public or private entities. But as these traditional sources are shrinking their allocations for basic research in general, and for the social sciences in particular, archaeologists can harness the power of the market and find market solution to funding of research. This paper will examine one such case—the institution of field schools and the significant way in which they create market incentives to all to generate significant funding, great research and strong commitment to pedagogy.
