Archaeology Magazine’s Spring Issue

i-754562f4de4748251ce9cd0fe41db573-cover.gifMy favourite stories in Archaeology Magazine’s spring issue:

  • J.T. Milanich on the practicalities, and the unforeseen hassle, of re-burying a collection of Native American skeletons he excavated in the 1980s before his recent retirement.
  • E.A. Powell on some fake “Atlantean” ruins built into a Dubai luxury hotel that will one day make a very strange meta-ruin.

  1. Thanks for the heads up on the Milanich article. I will definitely pick up a copy of Archaeology and read further. My own great-grandmother was a Florida Seminole and I agree we should be more respectful of remains that are excavated. Some anthropologists have decried the loss of these bones to reburial, but if they’ve had 20 years to study them what more can possibly be learned?

  2. Well, we’ve been able to look at the moon ever since the first human, and we’re still learning new stuff about it. New methods of analysis become available all the time. Reburial is a sad waste of future scientific opportunity IMHO. But it’s an interesting article.
