  • Walking the Land: Aboriginal Trails, Cultural Landscapes, and
           Archaeological Studies for Impact Assessment
    • Authors: Patricia A. McCormack
      Abstract: Abstract Aboriginal people have occupied northern Alberta since the end of the last ice age. For most of that time they travelled across the land by foot, producing complex networks of trails, many of which may have great antiquity. Aboriginal people also modified the landscape extensively by the use of controlled burning. Lastly, they are immersed in and “read” the land as places with multiple cultural meanings, which in turn helped shape their cultures and identities. Together, these elements indicate the existence of a series of overlapping cultural landscapes for which the cross-country trails and waterways provide the grid. This article addresses the importance of traditional trails for identifying the cultural landscapes of northeastern Alberta and points to the rapid disappearance today of knowledge about such trails. It considers how archaeological investigations done in Alberta for Impact Assessment purposes fail to consider either trails or cultural landscapes in their surveys or to consult with Aboriginal people. As a result, government Review Panels making recommendations for whether or not an industrial project should be approved are basing their findings on incomplete information about Aboriginal land uses and meanings.

  • Heritage Beyond Borders: Australian Approaches to Extra-National Built
    • Authors: Amy Clarke
      Abstract: Abstract The rights of the state to protect heritage within its borders, to ratify international conventions and to cooperate in bilateral engagements have been foundational concepts of heritage governance. Extreme circumstances may result in an intervention by non-state parties, but in times of peace it is typically the state that prevails. Drawing from recent efforts (2000s) of the Australian Federal Government to create a ‘List of Overseas Places of Historic Significance to Australia’, this paper explores the complications that can arise from the privileging of state authority in current approaches to heritage. This serves as a point of departure for considering the more widely applicable contradictions, limitations and loopholes of a global approach that favours the ‘state’ and the ramifications this might have for heritage diplomacy.

  • Control of Indigenous Archaeological Heritage in Ontario, Canada
    • Authors: Gary Warrick
      Abstract: Abstract Few Indigenous peoples have control over their heritage, despite international recognition of this right in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2007. In Ontario, Canada, the Ontario Heritage Act, R.S.O. 1990 regulates archaeology and grants licences to archaeologists to investigate archaeological heritage. Indigenous people want more control of their archaeological heritage in Ontario. To uphold Indigenous rights to archaeological heritage in Ontario, heritage legislation and policy needs to be revised and site protection increased. This paper recommends that Indigenous archaeological heritage in Ontario would be best protected by strengthening Ontario government land development policy and legislation to require the free, prior, and informed consent from affected Indigenous communities before removal of significant archaeological sites and remains from their ancestral territories.

  • Archaeology as State Heritage Crime
    • Authors: Richard M. Hutchings; Marina La Salle
      Abstract: Abstract North American archaeology is evaluated in light of state and heritage crime theory. When analyzed with preexisting typologies, the practice is shown to meet the threshold for state-sanctioned heritage crime. This study also demonstrates how current models of heritage crime do not adequately account for (1) the pivotal role states and state-sanctioned heritage experts play in committing heritage crime and (2) the implications of heritage crime for living descendant communities, not just physical artifacts and buildings. Typically thought of as crime against the state, seeing a state heritage regime as organized heritage crime opens the door to a host of theoretical and practical possibilities, including legal remedies for affected communities. Despite these opportunities, major impediments to meaningful change exist.

  • Sex, Transsexuality and Archaeological Perception of Gender Identities
    • Authors: Jan Turek
      Abstract: Abstract Reconsideration of some previous archaeological interpretations of gender may offer much more variability and freedom to our current understanding of gender identity. The perception of gender in archaeological interpretations commonly reflects our current social reality. In our Christian Western worldview, the traditional gender categories of men and women are based on biology and presume the primacy of the reproduction in human societies. Alternative social roles were judged as deviations by the biased majority. The extremely difficult position of homosexuals in twentieth-century Western society was caused mainly by the lack of an appropriate and commonly recognized gender category. No surprisingly, the concept of transsexualism developed in cultures that only recognized and valued two gender categories based on biological sex while the tribes in North America and Siberia had gender categories ready for such cases. In Western society, Christian norms instigated a social neglect of homosexuals mainly due to the absence of appropriate gender categories. As archaeologists, we should change our approach to the interpretation of past societies because our current gender categories do not always correspond to those of a former reality.

  • The Nationalistic Trend in South Korean Archaeology: Documenting the
           Development of a Unilinear Evolutionary Trajectory of a Homogeneous Korean
    • Authors: Hae Woon Park; Kaya Wee
      Abstract: Abstract This article aims to trace historical process of nationalism becoming embedded in general evolutionism in South Korean archaeology. The mindset sedimented in South Korean archaeologists is that all groups and polities in prehistoric and proto-historic Korea must be incorporated into a unilinear evolutionary stage model as a single people. Since 1945, South Korean archaeologists have endeavoured to establish the ethnic origin of this people, along with the timeline of Korean prehistory in order to reconstruct the unilinear independent history of the homogenous nation. By adopting periodization systems created in Western archaeology—such as the Three Age System and neo-evolutionism—leading South Korean archaeologists have attempted to objectify their irrational ideological idea of homogeneity and a unilinear evolutionary process. Even today, periodization itself is a very important issue in Korea, because it is not easy to combine the internal development pattern with the impact of external cultural traits diffused from China and incorporate various contemporary groups with different development levels into a single stage. These issues cause severe disputes; South Korean archaeologists, however, fail to offer an adequate solution, instead deepening the contradictions entailed in a unified timeline model, because they cannot change the fundamental premise of South Korean archaeology, namely the homogenous Korean nation formed in the Bronze Age. Moreover, these disputes rather prevent the application of a multi-evolutionary process model based on the political economy approach to the prehistoric and ancient Korean cases.

  • Fragmented Approach to Governance? Critical Review of the Role Played by
           Various Government Departments and Agencies in the Administration of
           Heritage Matters in South Africa
    • Authors: Ndukuyakhe Ndlovu
      Abstract: Abstract South Africa is one of the leading economic powerhouses in the African continent. With its rising population and the National Development Plan (NDP) aimed at repositioning South Africa, there is an increasing threat posed by the need to sustain positive economic growth patterns and thus create employment opportunities. As a result, various economic development factors such as mining, manufacturing and retail industries, and hosting of international sport games are springing around the country, leading to tensions between the growth and socio-economic development on the one hand and the environment on the other hand. Any opposition, on environmental or heritage grounds, against proposed development is thus seen as a threat to the creation of employment for the destitute communities. One of the heritage sites that have been exposed to one of these threats is the Mapungubwe Cultural Landscape (MCL). Of concern in this paper is the interaction of government departments and agencies in the administration of applications from various role players in economic development. Thus, using the Mapungubwe case study, I provide a brief historical background to the mining operations in the area and identify various government departments that had a role in the approval of the mining licence granted to Coal of Africa Limited (CoAL) by the Department of Minerals and Energy (DME) in 2010. Furthermore, how this application for the mining licence was dealt with in terms of coordination between the departments and the steps taken by all stakeholders to resolve the concerns raised is critically analysed. I conclude by offering a recommendation on a best practise to address the evident fragmentation in the approval process within government where heritage matters are affected.

  • An Authentic Learning Approach to Assessment in Australian Archaeology
    • Authors: Duncan Wright; Deborah Veness
      Abstract: Abstract A growing body of research exists that identifies the importance of authentic (including work integrated) learning for higher education. This follows increased pressure to produce graduates with skills and aptitudes that align with real-world requirements but also evidence which suggests long-term benefits of this form of self-directed and reflective learning. Major surveys involving academic and professional archaeologists have identified sizable gaps between university courses and the skill sets and attributes required by graduates seeking employment (eg. Ulm et al. in J Aust Archaeol Assoc 76:21–34, 2013). While there are many examples of active learning innovations in archaeology, the responsiveness of educators to these concerns is hard to gauge, as is the extent to which authentic learning has been scaffolded across the archaeology curriculum. This paper describes the adoption of a situated-learning, work-integrated approach to student learning for an “Australian archaeology” course at the Australian National University in Canberra. It reflects on the traditional/authentic divide including the value and constraints of such a model in the Australian higher education system.

  • Negative Experiences in Television Programming: A View from the Other Side
    • Authors: Suzie Thomas
      Abstract: Abstract Many professional archaeologists will engage with television. There seems to be little guidance—other than trial and error and personal communications—for navigating interactions with media production companies. Here, through a series of informal questions and answers, I present some issues with which one might be confronted in such engagements. I base my discussions on personal experience, literature and conversations with experienced colleagues. A key point is that media production companies’ agendas and priorities often differ from those of archaeologists. While the article draws on experiences from Europe and North America, it has relevance for archaeologists working with television everywhere.

  • Educating for Sustainability in Archaeology
    • Authors: John Carman
      Pages: 133 - 152
      Abstract: Abstract ‘Sustainability’ is a concept that suffuses the present. Policy initiatives require ‘sustainability’ as one of the criteria by which projects are judged. In recognition of their role as interpreters and custodians of the past, archaeologists are one of the many groups contributing to the creation of ‘a sustainable historic environment’ and ‘sustainable communities’. Accordingly, sustainability is a concept that we perhaps need to incorporate into our activities as educators of future good citizens and into our training for the profession of archaeology. This paper seeks to address this issue, particularly in the light of Themes and Sessions relating to both sustainability and education at WAC8, but where the link between them remains unexamined.

  • Pre-colonial Ethnic Wars and the Colonization of Northern Tanzania from
           1800 to 1950 CE: The Case of Chagga of Kilimanjaro
    • Authors: Valence Valerian Silayo
      Pages: 163 - 181
      Abstract: Abstract In the late 19th century, the various chiefdoms of the Chagga people of Mount Kilimanjaro, in north-eastern Tanzania, engaged in continuous warfare among themselves. While the Mangi (chiefs) sought to expand their areas of domination and strengthen their chiefdoms with the wealth acquired through warfare, they also provided an opening for foreigners to become involved in these local conflicts. This paper examines the role and impacts of the Chagga wars in the German colonization of Chagga land. In the initial stages of the colonization process, the Germans could not know where to start or who to partner with in order to facilitate this process in Kilimanjaro. With the entire Chagga community at war, one chiefdom against another, and the axis of power moving from chiefdom to chiefdom, it was not very easy for colonialists to determine which one was dominant. Although Rindi, the Mangi of Moshi, convinced the Europeans that he was the most powerful chief in Kilimanjaro, the ceaseless wars made the Germans aware that there were other more active and even stronger chiefdoms than Moshi. For the Germans to get into Kilimanjaro, and secure a future for themselves there, the solution was to wage war against the Chagga. Hence they engaged in war with the Kibosho Chiefdom which, under Mangi Sina, was by then the most powerful and prosperous chiefdom. Although Karl Peters had signed a treaty with Mangi Rindi of Moshi in 1885, the country was brought under complete colonial rule by Germans in the early 1890s, after subduing the long-running local wars in the area. This paper draws on the author’s research into oral history in Chagga land, and his archaeological survey of the area, to explore the unintended consequences of involving Europeans in the Chagga chiefdom’s local wars.

  • Finding the Past in the Landscape: Sambaqui and Kaizuka Amid Appropriation
           and Construction of Identities (Brazil and Japan)
    • Authors: Silvia Reis
      Pages: 182 - 214
      Abstract: Abstract In a comparative analysis, it is possible to discuss how sambaqui and kaizuka appear as objects of scientific investigation and also as part of the social imaginary and the cultural landscape. Archaeology, in its trajectory as a scientific field, is influenced or even directed by the different moments of construction of a national identity and discourse. While in Brazil there is a clear cut between the past and the building of a nation, situating sambaqui in the realm of the other, in Japan, the continuum from a past beyond records encompasses and situate the kaizuka within the social imaginary as part of the national narrative.

  • Balancing the Elements: An Archaeological Story
    • Authors: Katie Kirakosian
      Pages: 215 - 230
      Abstract: Abstract In this piece of short fiction, readers will explore the experiences of four American archaeologists as they complete an archaeological excavation impacted by laws at the local (Massachusetts State) and national (federal USA) level. All four archaeologists are in various stages of their careers in archaeology and find themselves working together for the same privatized Cultural Resource Management (CRM) firm on an unexpectedly complex and sensitive site excavation. Here readers are urged to consider how archaeologists’ previous experiences (both personal and professional) impact site excavations, and how, in turn, each project leaves an impression on an archaeological professional moving forward. They are further invited to relate the experiences of the archaeologists in the story to their own—possibly very different—experiences. While site context is key at every excavation, is the human context equally relevant?

  • Heritage Management and Interpretation: Challenges to Heritage Site-Based
           Values, Reflections from the Heritage Site of Umm Qais, Jordan
    • Authors: Abdelkader Ababneh
      Pages: 38 - 72
      Abstract: ABSTRACT The management of archaeological heritage is complex and problematic for site identity and local culture. Inattention to the array of values of heritage sites leads to the supremacy of a number of them and provides a controversy story of the archaeological site in question. Any heritage management and interpretation effort should correctly identify the different values of the site. Indeed, there is a need to manage and interpret the sites in a way to address the connection between the sites-based values and the associated and surrounding features. In current heritage management practice, values and values-based management are considered to be one of the most important approaches for the management of archaeological heritage. This study aims to understand how the values of the archaeological site of Umm Qais in northern Jordan can be adequately managed as both a natural and cultural landscape. At issue are conflicting views over the different values, their meaning and their uses by the different stakeholders. This research focuses on the ways in which these values are managed and interpreted to the public and whether it is done properly and in a fair manner. The fieldwork study led to a more complex understanding of how conflicting perceptions of values of Umm Qais as a national heritage site by the different stakeholders have affected implementation of management and interpretation projects. The results presented here indicate that the heritage management approach from the case study of Umm Qais focuses specifically on values associated with the physical archaeological aspect of the site, while those associated with the historic neighborhood of the site are neglected. The interpretation of the site has frequently focused on certain aspects of values at the expense of others. Information and insights gained from this study and specific suggestions for changing approaches are considered with regard to potential impacts on the management of the archaeological site and with regard to the public in general.

  • The Ethnocracy of the Palestinian Urban Space and the Indigenous Approach:
           Praxis and Theory
    • Authors: Talia Shay
      Pages: 73 - 90
      Abstract: Abstract This article is a case study of the Palestinian recent past that produces a new knowledge on the maltreatment given to the archaeological remains of the Palestinians in the Late Ottoman period (18th to 20th centuries) by the dominant culture in Israel. The inequitable representation of the Palestinian-Ottoman heritage by the state creates both submission and resistance to the prevailing culture by the Palestinian citizens. The new knowledge created by this case study may be further used in order to understand the diverse experience of marginality of various contemporary dispossessed and displaced groups.
