We have just celebrated ten years of open access public archaeology, and now we carry on with our venture. Volume 11 brings with it a new layout and format, as well as a new timing for publication. Since our inclusion in Scopus, improving quality goes in hand with the improvement of publication time. This is why, from now on (although this year is...
Article
¿Hemos llegado ya al futuro? Es la pregunta de partida de una reflexión que busca situar la arqueología española tras diez años de la publicación del libro El futuro de la arqueología en España. A través de un repaso por los diferentes ámbitos que engloban la práctica arqueológica se profundizará en los avances que está viviendo el sector y los ret...
Article
The emergence of far-right positions in Europe and beyond has exposed, once again, the misuse of history and archaeology in the political discourse. The role of social media and new forms of political communication is crucial in this sense. Building from the example of Vox, the latest intrusion into Spanish politics, this article frames the relatio...
Article
Community engagement is a widespread requirement in current archaeological work. However, heritage management still lacks public participation in many regions. This paper aims to offer an example of community engagement as applied research in the context of an international conference. In order to do so, the strategy, the actions for the targeted c...

14:36 – I am slightly late, but Tim is still there with his previous meeting, finishing lunch. This table has witnessed hundreds of conversations and is surely a landmark for public archaeology. I am not going to make a biography here, maybe you can learn something about him from the interview. If you follow this journal, and public archaeology, yo...

It was summer, I was searching for new books for my to-read pile and I came across Graeber’s latest work, Bullshit jobs (Graeber 2018). Right after buying it and reading the short essay it started with, I posted a question on Twitter: “Is archaeology a bullshit job?” Instantly, he answered—without even quoting him in the tweet—that it was not becau...

It seems like it was only yesterday that the Spanish government was giving away domains and Jaime got arqueologiapublica.es without really knowing what to do with it yet. A couple of years later, this domain became the home of a new journal and a dream came true. Today, after much hard work, a lot of perseverance and having overcome many challenges...

If your approach to archaeological method and practice goes beyond the trowel into more engaging and transformative practices, this is your event. If you believe that archaeology engages the political yesteryear and today, this is...
Article
La evolución de la presencia en internet de instituciones, proyectos y contenidos arqueológicos ha sido frenética en los últimos años. Los avances de la tecnología abrieron la puerta a nuevas fórmulas de comunicación digital. Poco a poco se ha creado una comunidad digital en torno a la arqueología, pero ¿es diferente de lo que ya existía? Si bien l...

Article
Within the broader debate to (re)define public archaeology, Grima's (2016) paper calls for an archaeology embedded in public archaeology, thereby focusing on this avenue of expansion instead of its own development as a singular discipline. Not fully rejecting this idea, this short paper aims to situate the debate a step beyond, towards a slightly d...
Thesis
Full-text available
Gestionar el patrimonio arqueológico es una tarea complicada y burocratizada que bebe de la herencia burguesa del pasado y hoy tenemos que poner en cuestión. Por ello, una disciplina como la arqueología pública nos puede ayudar a entender el modelo que vivimos y, de paso, a articular herramientas de gestión más efectivas para el buen devenir de la...

As with other cultural expressions, archaeology andthe past are also represented in porn movies, affecting the publicimage of our discipline as it does advertising, literature, or cinema.This paper explores an...

While Archaeology started to take form as a professional discipline, Alternative Archaeologies grew in several ways. As the years went by, the image of Archaeology started being corrupted by misconceptions and a lot of imagination, and those professionals that were claiming to be scientists forgot one of their first responsibilities; the public. Th...

In theory, archaeology was born as a knowledge-based activity in which the most important concern was getting to know the past better. Since the very beginning, we have been creating “products” in terms of heritage and archaeological information. In some way, perhaps due to the broadly extended capitalist mentality of the leading Anglo-Saxon stream...
Article
Archaeology is a discipline influenced by emerging cultural trends, especially with regard to theoretical approaches to interpretation and practice. Public archaeology is a relatively young approach, still finding its feet, and loose definitions of it have opened the door to multiple perspectives and opportunities. When research agendas include the...

Agatha Christie se casó de segundas nupcias con Max Mallowan, arqueólogo. En su novela Come, tell me how you live, describe su experiencia en las excavaciones en Siria, una de las mejores descripciones noveladas de la profesión. Con el tiempo han aparecido otras obras que en ocasiones, enfocan la imagen del arqueólogo desde un punto de vista meto...
Article
Stating the value of archaeology for contemporary society is a very difficult task hardly undertaken by archaeologists. Work with a contemporary record directly linked to local communities, and the approach of public archaeology, have helped to bring society and archaeology closer together. However, the role of a public intellectual goes beyond arc...

In this article we discuss the motivations, aims, and preliminary results of working with a local community in Ethiopia. Trying to escape from the (neo)colonial archaeology that is still practised in Africa, this project aims to achieve a cooperative and participative archaeology. This work with the community has been one of our main priorities in...

Question
Please, answer just with one word... the first that comes to your mind. There are no wrong answers, but it might be interesting to see what you think.
Question
My circle is mainly professional, but I would like to get a view from the 'real' public... so was wondering if there was any tool to enhance public participation in online surveys. I have seen stuff in games and so on, but not sure how it works, plus it seems expensive... any clues?
