SAAs, short version

Filed under: archaeology, archeology — Tags: , , , — John @ 5:56 pm

I’m super-tired and hungover, in the totally worth it way that reminds you that you had a really great time over the last few days. As such, thinking and focusing are a struggle, but I did want to write a short blog post, and make a .pdf of my paper available:

Blogging as a US CRM professional – John D

There was some live blogging of our session via Twitter. You can see the tweets by searching for #blogarch or just clicking here.

It was a really valuable session, I think, and a great experience. Thanks to all who presented, attending, commented, or followed online!


  1. Thanks John!

    I really wanted to make it to the session but I was having too good a time at the DDIG Symposium across the hall. Curse the SAA schedule!

  2. “But while our sites aren’t as stunning or rich as the huge civilizations spotlighted on
    television, the information we recover can be just as significant to archaeology and to
    local history. It’s not Pompeii or Teotihuacan or the Pyramids of Giza, but cultural
    heritage is still important enough that there are laws protecting sites, and time and money
    expended to identify them. If the public can understand this, they can better appreciate
    why cultural resources management practices are important and necessary, and might
    also raise awareness of stewardship. My idea is to let them know that there’s archaeology
    all around them, and that they can be engaged in it while also respecting and protecting it.”

    I love this.
