An Aspect of Archaeology's Recent Past and Its Relevance in the New Millennium

  • Jeremy A. Sabloff
  • Wendy Ashmore

Interest in the history of archaeology has grown dramatically in the past two decades, and rapidly growing publications, from books to articles to a newsletter devoted to the subject, have provided syntheses of the development of archaeological knowledge and significant new insights into the growth of the discipline of archaeology in both methodology and theory. This chapter is not intended simply as a recapitulation of the results of these publications or an overview of the insights. Rather, the purpose of this chapter, as an introduction to the general scope of this book, is to outline what the new understandings of the history of archaeological research and thought might tell us about the nature of the discipline at the dawn of the new millennium, and where the discipline appears to be heading. This chapter is not a comprehensive review, but instead, focuses on one major theme. In addition, the chapter’s concentration is on the history of American archaeology, for reasons of length and the authors’ expertise.
