Archaeology: Down to Earth

Archaeology: Down to Earth Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The 1996 discovery near Kennewick, Washington, of a 9,000-year-old Caucasoid skeleton brought more to the surface than bones. The explosive controversy and resulting lawsuit also raised a far more fundamental question: who owns history? Many Indians see archeologists as desecrators of tribal rites and traditions; archeologists see their livelihoods and science threatened by the 1990 Federal reparation law, which gives tribes control over remains in their traditional territories.

In this new work, Thomas charts the riveting story of this lawsuit, the archeologists' deteriorating relations with American Indians, and the rise of scientific archeology. His telling of the tale gains extra credence from his own reputation as a leader in building cooperation between the two sides.

Book News Annotation:

A brief synopsis, distilled from Thomas' Archaeology (1989), of contemporary archaeology as taught and practiced in American universities. Pivots on the work of eight archaeologists to present a highly personal account of the field. Acidic paper.
