Applied Cultural Archeology Defined

ACA addresses Archeological Resources as an Environmental Dimension.

We hold that this dimension extends to all times and periods and all levels of significance.

As with all of the environmental dimensions in which we live the interface of the archeological environment with culture is dynamic.

Without effective adaptations of the lifeways of all citizens the archeological environment can neither be protected nor effectively managed.

The scope of Applied Cultural Archeology mandates that care for the Archeological environment both of the past and that now forming be vested in all citizens rather than in government and acaademic programs which are inherently limited by mandate, scope of work and funding.

As with the recent awareness of the natural environments in which we live effective Applied Cultural Acheology mandates a life-way constructed to be in harmony with all aspects of the Archeological Environment.

Applied Cultural Archeology threatens no one. When adopted it will call for more utilization of professional archeologists. It is essentially the realm of local community archeological socities. It will give them more purpose and will increase their memberships and support.

The central focus is to develop the effective life-way of the individual within the Environment of Archeology.  We must apply awareness and concern for the Archeologcial Environment Culturally within all groups as an integral part of the lifeway, not an option, national goal or research interest.
