Engaged Archaeology: Thinking Outside the Box

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


    Claire Smith, Flinders University - Banquet presentation on 9th November, 2014, at the 47th annual Chacmool conference, Breaking Barriers, Calgary, Canada. This paper discusses the emergence of, and trends in, engaged archaeology. It presents a definition of engaged archaeology and focuses on engaged archaeology as it has encouraged archaeologists to think outside the box (where the box is the disciplinary boundary). Thinking outside the box involves breaking down barriers between archaeologists and those in other disciplines and, most importantly, between archaeologists and the communities with whom they work.
