Putting the Past to Work: Archaeology, Community, and Economic Development
Archaeologists are increasingly engaging in projects designed to secure economic benefits for communities adjacent to archaeological and heritage sites. These projects take many forms, but all raise one important question: Do archaeologists have the right models and tools to promote projects that have sustainable economic benefits and meet the needs of local communities? In this lecture, Peter Gould, University College London, reports on a research project designed to explore that question. Sponsored by the Penn Cultural Heritage Center. Free admission.
