The Future of Archaeological Research on Public Lands: A Case Study from California
Author(s): Kent Lightfoot
Lynne Goldstein has been on the front lines in developing innovative field programs for the study of diverse places in North America.This paper examines her influence on archaeological investigations undertaken at the Russian colony of Ross in northern California. A significant trend in the study of sites on public lands is the shift from broad-scale, high-impact excavations to low-impact field practices. The paper outlines her legacy in the development of coordinated research programs that involve museum investigations of older archaeological collections in combination with the strategic use of limited, fine-grained fieldwork.
