Collaborative Research as an Adaptive Strategy among New England Archaeologists

Author(s): Richard Boisvert

Year: 2018


NH SCRAP (State Conservation and Rescue Archaeology Program) was created in 1978 principally to train and certify the general public in the conduct of archaeology in New Hampshire. While engagement in fieldwork draws many volunteers, generates substantial recognition, and serves to promote archaeology well beyond the borders of the state - analysis and publication have always been integral parts of the program. Outreach to undergraduate students, graduate students, and avocational archaeologists has produced a remarkable body of research and publication. Foremost has been the advancement of Paleoindian studies in the Northeast though hardly to the exclusion of other research. Accomplishments by SCRAP researchers are reviewed and the unique aspects of the program are elaborated.
