The Science of Managing Archaeology
Type de publication:Conference Paper
Résumé (en anglais):
Managing the investigation of archaeological resources and the resultant archaeological record depends as much on sound project management as archaeological expertise. A comprehensive yet dynamic approach to process improvement and information flow is a prerequisite for best conserving the archaeological record, often the only remnant of the resource. When professional archaeologists develop skills in organizational strategies and structures, they and archaeology benefit. This poster presents an examination of the ways in which the search for a more profound understanding of the science of managing archaeology led a Canadian CRM firm, with their partners, to develop an innovative integrated work system.
