2 Potter, Parker B. Jr. Public Archaeology in Annapolis: a Critical Approach to History in Maryland's Ancient City
1560984104 / 9781560984108; Parker Potter examines the goals and specific initiatives in Archeology in Annapolis, a city-wide research program in Annapolis, Maryland. In a nuts-and-bolts analysis of this program, Potter addresses several issues of archaeological interpretation. He feels that archeologists and historians need to take into consideration current economic, social, and political conditions, as well as the needs of sponsors, in presenting their findings. They are interested in not only preserving the past, Potter writes, but also their sense of identity, especially against the encroachment of outsiders. A fascinating book for anyone interested in archeology. Includes maps, references and an index. Photographs scattered throughout. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
