Straight from the Horse's Mouth: Understanding Public Archaeology from the Public

Author(s): Mary Furlong Minkoff

Year: 2018

Summary

For the past two decades, archaeologists have worked to engage members of the public in archaeological research, preservation, and interpretation. Because of the huge variety in the types of publics engaged in these projects and the approaches of the archaeologists running them, we are continually refining our methods of public archaeology implementation, execution, and evaluation. Despite this variety, we rarely hear directly from program participants. For this panel we have invited public archaeology program participants to tell us what we as public archaeologists are doing right, what we’re doing wrong, what keeps them coming back, and what they see as the future of public archaeology.
