  • Editorial: 2021, a new decade starts

    • Authors: Jaime Almansa-Sánchez
      Pages: 1 - 2
      Abstract: We have just celebrated ten years of open access public archaeology, and now we carry on with our venture. Volume 11 brings with it a new layout and format, as well as a new timing for publication. Since our inclusion in Scopus, improving quality goes in hand with the improvement of publication time. This is why, from now on (although this year is still a transitional period), volumes will open in January and close in October, with articles being published when they are ready. We are also starting a new section for shorter articles, aimed at the reporting of projects or ideas with a more formal format than our section Points of You, which will continue to retain its op-ed style. Of course, the philosophy does not change. We want to continue to be an opportunity of wider accessibility for authors and readers, and to continue exploring the physical and thematic frontiers of the discipline.

  • Entertainment outreach projects without losing scientific content: A
           Neolithic puppet show by senior citizens and Roma women

    • Authors: Millán Mozota, Santiago Higuera, Vanessa Guzmán, Gerard Remolins, Juan Francisco Gibaja
      Pages: 1 - 16
      Abstract: In this work, we present the genesis, development, and results of a set of inclusive outreach activities developed through a puppet theatre play about the Neolithic. We present our methodology and techniques for outreach activities, showing the advantages of collaborative work and bottom-up approaches. The text also explains how the initiative was born and how the contacts for its realization consolidated. All the activities were carried out with the utmost care for the scientific content since it is essential that the public comes to understand all the archaeological information and differentiates it from the entertaining and dramatic elements.

  • The Gods die in museums

    • Authors: Jaime Delgado Rubio
      Pages: 1 - 14
      Abstract: Recently, Johannes Neurath’s book, titled Subdue the gods, doubt the images (2020) was published, which, among other things, warns that, in the archaeological museums of Mexico, including the National Institute of Anthropology and History of Mexico City, there has been an “ontological mistreatment” of the sacred images of the pre-Hispanic era through their removal from their original locations and indistinct placement in large and cold rooms packed with monoliths, without any consideration for the fact that some were – and continue to be – images bestowed with power and influence by many communities today.

  • Objects as battlefields in the struggle for civil rights: The archaeology
           and analysis of contemporary material culture and heritage in Chile

    • Authors: Dafna Goldschmidt Levinsky, Javiera Letelier Cosmelli
      Pages: 1 - 5
      Abstract: In October of 2019 began, as a manifestation of growing discontent, in Santiago de Chile a movement of social protests popularly known as “Estallido social”. This movement marched against social inequality and high cost of living, targeting the neoliberal system established during the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet as responsible. Although Chile has been a democracy since 1990, inequality and social injustice has perpetuated  in democracy. We reflect on the role of the contemporary objects, their contexts and the position of archaeology in revealing current struggle discourse of civil rights, social diversity and social conflicts. Likewise, we analyze the transformation process of cultural heritage meanings through time, observable both in the appropriation of quotidian objects as way as protest as the resignification of the traditional monuments erected in the city.

  • Review: Educación y divulgación del patrimonio arqueológico

    • Authors: Eduardo Cerrato Casado
      Pages: 1 - 5
      Abstract: A popular proverb states ‘Don't play with your food’. This  maxim that not only concerns those of us who have the immense fortune of dedicating our working hours (and more if possible) to the noble discipline of archaeology and historical research. If anything is really clear to us, it is that Heritage (from the perspective of investigation, safeguard and management) is more than  the ‘food’ of a couple of professors and four tourist guides, but of many thousands whose income depends on it essentially through tourism. In fact, tourism in Spain in 2019 before the pandemic yielded 154,487 million Euros to the economy, representing 12.4% of its GDP. In fact, dear reader, please reflect on what drives you to go on vacation' And what leads you to choose one tourist destination over another' The response is simple: diversity. It represents a search for something that is unknown where you reside, something unique and unrepeatable that is only found at a particular destination, a unique setting offering an aesthetic or gastronomic experience that otherwise would not be worth the visiting. This book under review delves precisely into the question of this diversity we seek when traveling as it is Heritage (either material or intangible, artistic, monumental, archaeological or natural) that gives an identity to each city, each community. Heritage renders them different from other neighbouring cities. From a material point of view, Heritage is what attracts tourists and, even more, from a sentimental point of view, it is what offers signs of identity to locals. Thus in the end we are not only talking about ‘things to eat’.

  • Modeling Municipal Heritage Management

    • Authors: Adriaan De Man, João Tiago Tavares
      Pages: 17 - 37
      Abstract: The resources medium-sized municipalities allocate in the process of both creating and maintaining instruments for heritage management have increased in the last decades. There are first and foremost legal reasons for this, as European national laws translate societal concerns on the preservation and commodification of the past. Sustainable solutions may be achieved through the understanding of heritage assets, and their use in the support of responsible, data-driven choices. This paper analyses a case of local tangible heritage administration in Oliveira de Azeméis, Portugal.
