Complicit archaeologists

 

While I know this case is complicated (“A whistleblower speaks out over excavation of Native sites,” December 2020), I think that archaeologists would be lying if we didn’t admit that we recognize the patterns and structures reported on here.

I know we wouldn’t have to try hard to find many stories like this one. Because it’s actually less about individual practices/individual archaeologists and much more about the absolute failure at a structural, cultural level of archaeology to be in good relation.
