Archaeologists and Native Americans team up to interpret the past, shape the future

I am always pleased to see this as it does a number of things. But most importantly it shows that arcaeologists who cooperative and coordinate and 'work' with native leaders and render respect, as they deal with digs and artifacts, are the ones who will be respected in return. It has nothing to with religion or even spirituality imo...but just simple respect for anothers beliefs system and that person's past.
 
People generally have a pride in their past and when it's not trampled on.. chances are they remain grateful in return. Hence the reason for NAGPRA and like agreements. It has proven to be a winner for all concerned.

If this is the same person, she has figured out that the Greeks may have been the first paleontologists.
She went back over 50 years of site notes from other excavations and found that fossils were found in almost every major excavation, but only noted in the site notes.

I've always thought the worldwide Dragon myths were also fossil inspired.

Look forward to it....and in the case above I smell an 'anthro' on that team.... because your right the generalist 'archy'.... avoids religious and theological investigations like the Juarez clap. Unless they have been specifically sub trained (and then funded by religious institutions) and generally that's the lads from the Private religious schools..with that in their background.

Nice stuff CV.  It's not common to see an arch. take on something like the religious practices.  I have a special interest that hopefully, I'll be able to share soon.

Explorer David Thompson's first trading post discovered in Manitoba

 
Excellent. Thompson was an early hero of mine and it's delightful that the man's accomplishments have restirred interest.

Varys from my experience in the US. private property is one thing but if it is of unusual or extremely signficant social or theological-spiritual value ie. bones etc of human remains (generally Native American) it's usually controlled by state and or federal law.
 
Which i endorse as I detest antiquities thieves as much as forum spammers.Big smile
 
Thanks for your coments.
 
 
 
The operative phrase is "culturally significant".  Apparently, Manchester is one of those places where you can't put a shovel in the ground without finding something.  Coins, oil lamps etc. small artifacts.  The Gov. only gets twisted over things like the Staffordshire Hoard. 
 
In the US it varies from state to state.  Unfortunately, it all comes down to enforcement, and the money available to investigate and prosecute.
