Abstract

In this entry we discuss the subsequent emergence of, and trends in, an engaged archaeology in terms of the forms of engagement Low and Merry (2010) identified in anthropology: (1) sharing and support, (2) teaching and public education, (3) social critique, (4) collaboration, (5) advocacy, and (6) activism. In doing so, we are able to identify current trends in engaged archaeology.
