The Rose Room Workshop

Author(s): E. James Dixon; Loren G. Davis

Year: 2021


This is an abstract from the "Advances in Global Submerged Paleolandscapes Research" session, at the 86th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.

This presentation reports the outcomes of a workshop held at the Smithsonian Institution Museum of Natural History, Washington, DC, June 2019. The workshop identified stakeholders, collaborations, and synergistic relationships to establish and expand cooperative interdisciplinary and agency partnerships to encourage, advance, and support submerged landscape (non-shipwreck) archaeology and paleoecological research on North America’s continental shelves and the Great Lakes. Participants defined stakeholder interests, federal and state responsibilities, sources of fiscal support, methodological and technological needs, and tribal and cultural interests and concerns. Working groups identified potential ways to establish cooperative structure(s) to consolidate and/or pool human, logistic, technological, and financial resources to advance research. Results and recommendations for future directions were defined in a summative action plan. Fiscal support provided by the National Science Foundation, OPP #1735494, Smithsonian Institution, Department of Anthropology, Museum of Natural History, and Oregon State University.
