Archaeology is perceived to study the people of long ago and far away. How could archaeology matter in the modern world? Well-known archaeologist Jeremy Sabloff points to ways in which archaeology might be important to the understanding and amelioration of contemporary problems. Though archaeologists have commonly been associated with efforts to uncover cultural identity to restore the past of underrepresented peoples and to preserve historical sites their knowledge and skills can be used in many other ways. Archaeologists help Peruvian farmers increase crop yields aid city planners in reducing landfills and guide local communities in tourism development and water management. This brief volume aimed at students and other prospective archaeologists challenges the field to go beyond merely understanding the past and actively engage in making a difference in the today�s world.Read more
