Public Archaeology in Remote Places

Author(s): Stacey Camp

Year: 2018


Public outreach and engagement has long been perceived as a cornerstone of historical archaeology. Many of the earliest public archaeological projects in the discipline concerned sites that had a significant preexisting audience, such as an urban environment. This paper looks at what it means to do public archaeology in remote settings, and it will explore how archaeologists engage the public when their sites are places of intentional displacement. How do public archaeology strategies and tactics shift in cases where a site remains physically accessible to most members of the public?
