OVERVIEW In the Department of Archaeology’s 2012–2013 annual report we offer a distillation of news of developments in teaching and research, department-sponsored and collaborative activities, and of faculty and student awards and publications in the preceding academic year. Both our faculty and students have been productive and have made important contributions to our understanding of the human past. Media coverage of research undertaken by our faculty and PhD students has been featured online, in print, and on television and radio. We have been able to maintain our commitment to the highest standards in fieldwork, archaeological science, and scholarship. The year 2012 marked the 30th anniversary of the founding of the Department of Archaeology, and, although we were all too busy to pause for celebration of this coming of age, we remain aware of the special role we play in promoting and practicing the human science of archaeology in a truly interdisciplinary and integrative fashion with contributions from the natural and social sciences as well as from the humanities.

HIGHLIGHTS This year we welcomed Prof. John (“Mac”) Marston as Assistant Professor of Archaeology and Anthropology; he is an environmental archaeologist specializing in the long-term sustainability of agriculture and land use, especially in the Mediterranean and western Asia. In 2012–13 he taught AR307, Archaeological Science in both semesters, and AR/AN510, Proposal Writing for Social Science Research in the spring. Creation of an environmental archaeology lab for Prof. Marston turned out to be our major renovation project over the past year; the lab was completed in April, 2013 and is now fully operational. Over the winter intercession, Boston University audio-visual resource specialists installed in our Gabel Museum of Archaeology an Echo360 lecture capture system. Funded by the College of Arts and Sciences and Prof. Danti’s Mosul Archaeology Project’s (MAP) grant from the U.S. Department of State, the system allows us to develop online and distance learning courses, initially for MAP, but it will be available for many additional digital learning initiatives. We also received funds from the CAS to refurbish our Teaching Fellow bullpen (STO350), a project completed in early June, 2013. Summer 2013 marks the maiden voyage of our new hexacopter, or UAV, acquired in January with funds from CAS; it is being used by Profs. Roosevelt and Luke in the Central Lydia Archaeological Survey (CLAS) in Turkey for aerial 1|Page

photography and mapping. Students enrolled in Prof. Roosevelt’s new fall 2013 class, Lay of the Land: Surface and Subsurface Mapping in Archaeology, will receive instruction in its use along with other techniques of archaeological mapping.

Summary of highlights: •

Prof. John (“Mac”) Marston joined us as Assistant Professor of Archaeology and Anthropology.

Our former darkroom and Visual Resources Library (STO348) has been converted and now serves as Prof. Marston’s Environmental Archaeology Laboratory (p. 33).

We now have the capability to create online course content and podcasts through the installation of an Echo 360 capture system in the Gabel Museum of Archaeology with funding from the College of Arts & Sciences and from Prof. Danti’s US State Department grant for the Mosul Archaeology Project (p. 4).

The large room that serves as our Teaching Fellow “bullpen” (STO350) has been renovated to provide a well-lit and handsomely furnished workspace (p. 34).

Our field survey and mapping capabilities have been greatly enhanced by the College of Arts & Sciences-funded purchase of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) for use in aerial photography and photogrammetry.

ARCHAEOLOGY'S GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE Our department has always emphasized archaeology as a global, comparative study of both the distant and recent past. Our faculty and students work both in places like Greece and Egypt that immediately come to mind when people think about archaeology, but they also work in Turkey, Spain, Israel, Iraq, South Africa, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Peru, Italy, Ethiopia, Mali, Syria, Pakistan, Montserrat and Guadeloupe (West Indies), France, Italy, the United States, Bermuda, Guatemala, Mexico, Jordan, Taiwan, China, Japan, Indonesia, Panama, and Ireland.

Through Boston

University’s Study Abroad, we offer archaeological field schools in Spain and Guatemala, and our students also receive training through participation in ongoing faculty research projects around the globe.

FIELD SCHOOL AT TORRE D'EN GALMÉS, MENORCA The Department of Archaeology held a field school at the site of Torre d’en Galmés in Menorca from June 6 to July 18, 2012. Torre d’en Galmés is an Iron Age site that was continuously occupied until the 14th century. The field school was led by Professors Ricardo Elia, Amalia Pérez-Juez, and Paul Goldberg, along with graduate student teaching assistants Marta Ostovich and Allison Cuneo. Twelve undergraduate students participated in the project.

The team sought to understand how different groups and cultures used the site over the course of those 2000 years. There are three main time periods represented at Torre d’en Galmés: Iron Age, when the site was built under strong Carthaginian commercial and cultural influence; the Roman period, especially the republican era; and the Muslim medieval reoccupation of the site between the 10th and the 13th centuries.

MOSUL UNIVERSITY ARCHAEOLOGICAL PROGRAM A team of archaeologists under the direction of Prof. Michael Danti will partner with educators at Mosul university on an innovative program to revive higher education and cultural heritage management in Iraq. Centered on the study of Iraqi archaeology and culture, the new Mosul University Archaeological Program (MAP) will focus on curriculum development, design and implementation of online courses and real-time video conferences, and cultural study programs in the U.S. and Iraq. The program is funded by a grant from the U.S. State Department through its embassy in Iraq. Left: Graduate student Allison Cuneo delivering a lecture recorded as part of a MAP module. Note Echo360 camera in upper-left corner of the image and Echo capture equipment racks in bottom-right corner (for more on this technology, see below).

ICEAACH MONGOLIAN HERITAGE DELEGATION ROUNDTABLE On May 10, 2013, the International Center for East Asian Archaeology and Cultural History was delighted to host a visiting delegation of seven Mongolian archaeologists and cultural heritage specialists. The group included faculty members from the Department of History at Chinggis Khaan University, as well as the Director of the Department of Cultural Preservation (Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism), and the Director of the Department of Culture in Ulaanbaatar. Their visit to Boston University, with a focus on “Preservation of Cultural Heritage & Artifacts” was arranged under the U.S. Department of State's International Visitor Leadership


Program (IVLP). Over the course of two hours, their lively discussion with BU faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, and members of the Archaeological Institute of America covered a range of topics, including government policies to support the promotion of cultural heritage, methods of preservation and restoration of cultural and historical artifacts, and best practices at leading archeological institutions and relevant government agencies. Participants exchanged ideas about possible future student and faculty exchanges, mutual development of library resources, and other potential collaborations. The discussion was followed by a traditional American BBQ dinner at a local Allston restaurant, which the Mongolian delegation obviously enjoyed very much, given the enthusiasm of their bear hugs upon departure.

Below: Roundtable participants discussing archaeology and heritage issues.

PROF. BEAUDRY DELIVERS 24TH MCDONALD LECTURE On November 21, 2012, Prof. Mary Beaudry delivered the prestigious 24th annual McDonald Lecture at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research at Cambridge University.


lecture, titled "Gastronomical Archaeology: Food, Materiality, and the Aesthetics of Dining" combined her interests in food, material culture, and theories of practice, identity, and gender in bringing together multiple lines of evidence—archaeological, documentary, visual arts—to interpret the practices, experiences, and aesthetics of cookery and dining in the early modern world.


VISITING SCHOLARS The department and ICEAACH hosted a number of outside-funded scholars who have spent varying lengths of time at BU studying and making use of BU’s academic resources, presenting their own research, and interacting with students and faculty at BU and in the greater Boston area. Visiting Researchers have included scholars from the US, United Kingdom, Italy, Korea, Vietnam, China, and Japan. Tânia Casimiro joined the department in fall, 2012 as a Visiting Researcher after receiving a postdoctoral grant from Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (FCET) in Portugal.

Tânia is

using Boston University as a base of operations for her research into collections of Portuguese

faiança from colonial sites in the Boston area and throughout North America. Her research will add to our knowledge of the distribution of Portuguese ceramics in the early modern Atlantic world and will give insight into the composition of assemblages at American sites and what trade with Portugal meant to the emergence and growth of Europe's colonies in the Americas. Jody Michael Gordon became a Visiting Research with us in 2011–12, during which time he completed and successfully defended his dissertation on Cyprus under Hellensitc and Roman rule at the University of Cincinnati. In 2012–13 he continued his association with us while producing a series of articles based on his dissertation, organizing and chairing a session at the annual meetings of the American Schools of Oriental Research held in Chicago in November, 2012, delivering a paper at the Archaeological Institute of America’s annual meeting in January, 2013, and lecturing at three local colleges. On March 28, 2013, Gordon gave a fascinating talk in the Archaeology department’s lecture series on “Why Empires Matter: A Postcolonial Archaeology of Cultural Identity in Hellenistic and Roman Cyprus.” Beginning in fall, 2013, he will take up a full-time position as Assistant Professor in the Humanities and Social Sciences at the Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston. Francesco Berna, postdoctoral researcher, lecturer, and research professor since 2006 in Prof Paul Goldberg's Microstratigraphy Lab, accepted a position as Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Archaeology at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia. Berna continues his association with Boston University as Adjunct Assistant Professor of Archaeology. See him participate in a panel discussion on his research on the early use of fire at Wonderwerk Cave in South Africa and at Koobi Fora in Kenya at the public roundtable discussion “Prometheus and Prehistory: Fire and Human Origins” held by the Department of Anthropology on April 18, 2013 here. .


BU ARCHAEOLOGISTS IN THE NEWS Throughout the year, faculty and students from the Archaeology Department have made news for their research and discoveries. Here are just a few examples; the major research projects discussed in Research Highlights also received a tremendous amount of press coverage.

PROFESSOR BARD ON ANCIENT EGYPTIAN SHIP-BUILDING Prof. Kathryn Bard contributed to a VoiceAmerica radio program titled "Indiana Jones: Myth, Reality, and 21st-Century Archaeology." As part of a segment called "They Also Made Boats...: Maritime Archaeology in Pharaonic Egypt,." Prof. Bard spoke with Dr. Joseph Schuldenrein about her discoveries at the site of Mersa/Wadi Gawasis and what they can tell us about seafaring in Ancient Egypt. The program can be heard here.

FLIGHT OF THE HEXACOPTER Prof. Chris Roosevelt tested his latest research tool: a remote-controlled hexacopter. The small six-rotor flying tool, equipped with a camera, will be used in Turkey by the Central Lydia Archaeology Survey, a Boston University archaeological project under the co-direction of Chris Roosevelt and Christina Luke. Read more about the hexacopter, and watch a video of a test flight, here. Below: Still from video of hexcopter test flight (Image courtesy of BU Arts & Sciences)

CLAY BALLS AND MAYA CUISINE Graduate student Stephanie Simms has made news for her work on the role of clay balls in Maya foodways. An article detailing







magazine (read it here) and the results of scientific analysis conducted by Stephanie and Prof. Francesco Berna were presented in a Discovery News article (read it here).

THE DESTRUCTION OF SYRIA'S CULTURAL HERITAGE Amid the on-going strife in Syria, scholars have grown increasingly concerned over the destruction of the country's cultural heritage. Prof. Michael Danti was interviewed as part of a Public Radio International’s The World coverage of damage to the ancient souk at Aleppo. Listen to the interview or read a transcript here.

CULTURAL COMMUNICATION IN MAYA MURALS The BU Arts & Sciences magazine documented Prof. William Saturno's work on rare murals discovered at the Maya site of Xultún, Guatemala. In the article, Prof. Saturno describes the relationship between the murals at Xultún, Maya culture, and the global interest in the myth of a 2012 apocalypse.

CLAY WEAPONS FOR CLAY WARRIORS Prof. Robert Murowchick was interviewed by The Washington Post for an article about the ancient methods used to produce weapons for the famous terra-cotta army of Qin Shi Huang. Read about the new discoveries here.


HERITAGE DISASTER AT NOHMUL, BELIZE Controversy has arisen in Belize, where contractors recently bulldozed a 2,300-year-old Maya site to plunder its limestone and gravel for a new construction project. This destruction has caused some to call for a reexamination of heritage policies in some Central and South American countries. Prof. Emeritus Norman Hammond was quoted in a Huffington Post article in which he pointed out the ubiquity of destructive practices in Belize (read the article here) and Research Assistant Prof. Francesco Estrada-Belli offered his perspective on the damage in The

Guardian (read the article here).

COLONIAL STORIES IN WILLIAMSBURG, VIRGINIA Graduate student Hank Lutton's research in Colonial Williamsburg has received recent attention.

Hank has

been working on behalf of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation at the Rabon-Saunders House, an 18thcentury brick home on Williamsburg's Ireland Street. During their excavations, Hank and his team located evidence of several 18th- and 19th-century outbuildings and landscape features.

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHTS UPDATES TO EVIDENCE FOR ANCIENT SEAFARING FOUND ON CRETE Over the course of the last year, Curtis Runnels has made progress with his research connected






seafaring. Early Palaeolithic artifacts from his survey on the island of Crete (Greece) indicate that early humans may have been traversing the Mediterranean Sea as early as 800,000 years ago. previously

continuing research on the dating and implications of these finds was presented at a conference on early Mediterranean seafaring hosted by the Wenner-Gren Foundation in Reggio di Calabria in Italy in October, 2012, and the paper from the conference was submitted in April to the Journal of Eurasian Prehistory for publication. Runnels will continue his investigation of the presence of early humans in the Greek islands while he is the Cotsen Fellow in Archaeology at the School for Advanced Research on the Human Experience (SAR) in Santa Fe, New Mexico this summer.

URBANISM IN THE TLAJINGA DISTRICT, TEOTIHUACAN, MEXICO The archaeology of early urbanism provides deep historical context for an increasingly urbanized world. Professor David M. Carballo and Dr. Kenneth G. Hirth will direct a collaborative three-year project involving an international team of interdisciplinary researchers at the ancient city of Teotihuacan, Mexico. During its height in the early first millennium AD Teotihuacan was the largest city in the Americas and one of the largest in the world. Today, being a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the most visited ruins in the Americas, Teotihuacan is of great interest to a broad audience.

10 | P a g e

The project focuses on the Tlajinga district, a cluster of neighborhoods south of Teotihuacan inhabited by lower socioeconomic stratum of the city’s populace, that was the locus of intensive

Right: Prof. Carballo (right) with colleagues from the Proyecto Arqueologico Tlajinga, Teotihuacan

utilitarian craft production, and is bisected by the terminus of the city’s central artery—named the Street of the Dead by the later Aztecs. The Tlajinga district provides an opportune setting for examining issues of broad interest to social and behavioral sciences and represents a minimally explored portion of the city whose archaeological record is threatened by contemporary urbanization surrounding greater Mexico City. Professor Carballo, with funding from the National Science Foundation, will work alongside BU graduate and undergraduate students to study urbanism, household production, and population demographics at Teotihuacan.

THE LEVANTINE CERAMICS PROJECT Professor Andrea Berlin is continuing work on the collaborative Levantine Ceramics Project. Aided by two grants from the Rafik B. Hariri Institute, the project involves building a tool designed to readily accommodate new data and bring it into dialogue with older information, to foster the sharing of data that are easy for scholars to access and use, to allow them to quickly learn from each other and to refine and correct information. It is a public research website focused on ceramics produced in and distributed throughout the Levant, from the Neolithic era (c. 5500 BCE) through the Ottoman period (c. 1920 CE). It is an open, interactive, international collaborative effort, part forum and part archive, designed for ongoing expansion. Since launching in Spring 2011, the site has attracted a quickly growing, self-seeding international 11 | P a g e

research community: it has already received contributions from 100 researchers from 16 different countries, including almost 700 items, arranged in 185 different ware groups, and currently spanning 5000 years of Levantine ceramic production.

Prof. Berlin launched a

revamped version of the website,, incorporating all of the information from the earlier version and invited colleagues old and new to contribute data. The response was immediate and extraordinary.

In the past three months alone the new site has already

received almost 600 visitors and over 4000 page views. In the future, Prof. Berlin will continue to reach out to colleagues for more information, while refining the website's functionality.

INTERACTIVE TEXT VISUALIZATION FOR THE HUMANITIES On April 8, 2013, Prof. Berlin, with funding from the Boston University Center for the Humanities and sponsorship by the Rafik b. Hariri Institute for Computing and Computational Science & Engineering, organized a workshop led by Milena Radzikowska and Stan Ruecker, pioneers in the development of interactive digital systems. Interactive visualizations provide the means by which users can explore, manipulate, and experiment with information, and so develop their own ideas as well as share them with others. The workshop touched on the theoretical background for interactive visualization tools and moved on to consider speculative timelines, comparative search visualization, an enhanced reading environment, a theatre simulation system, and a number of different rich-prospect browsers.

THE DAACS DIGITAL RESEARCH COLLABORATIVE (DRC) In May, 2013, Prof. Beaudry participated in one of a planned series of workshops at Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello for academic partners of the Digital Archaeological Archive of Comparative Slavery (DAACS). With a $450,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Department of Archaeology at Monticello is developing software that will allow partners in the DRC to use ordinary web browsers to enter data from their excavations into the DAACS database, to discover meaningful patterns and to compare patterns across geographically scattered archaeological sites. The project offers instruction funding in the form of summer stipends for historical archaeology graduate students from each of the DRC universities, including the Department of Archaeology at Boston University.

Each year we co-sponsor

several lectures with the Boston chapter of the Archaeological Institute of America, and ICEAACH through its East Asian Archaeology Forum, funded by the Boston University Center for the Humanities, offers a series of lectures and informal talks given by visiting scholars working in Asia. The EAAF lecture series, now completing its 13th year, enables ICEAACH to bring to Boston University both young and established scholars of East and Southeast Asian archaeology and related fields to present their current research in an informal public forum.

PROFESSOR CLEMENCY COGGINS RETIRES Dr. Clemency Chase Coggins joined the Department of Archaeology as an Adjunct Associate Professor in 1988, was promoted to Adjunct Professor in Archaeology and Art History in 1993 and to Professor of Archaeology and History of Art and Architecture in 1998. Before coming to BU, she earned her PhD in Fine Art at Harvard University. She brought to BU her considerable expertise in pre-Columbian art and urban planning and the illegal trade in pre-Columbian antiquities, a topic on which she has published widely—she was a founding editor of the

International Journal of Cultural Property. She has regularly taught popular courses such as Art & Architecture in Ancient America, Ancient Aztec & Inca Civilizations, Mesoamerican Art, Museums & Objects, and Ancient American Writing Systems.

She has served on numerous

dissertation and thesis committees and has always insisted that students must research carefully, think critically, and write clearly. She has been a most valued and caring colleague, and we will miss her and the many contributions she made to both of her home departments.

UNDERGRADUATE HIGHLIGHTS Professor David Carballo continued in his role as Director of Undergraduate Studies. Our undergraduate program continues to be popular, with approximately 75 majors, 20 minors, and over 1600 students taking classes in the department last year. Our undergraduates are very active and participate in the life of the department in many ways, including undertaking collaborative research with faculty and graduate students, curating artifact collections at the Gabel Museum, speaking with prospective students at the Departmental Expos, and sharing their knowledge during Archaeology Month events. Extra-curricular activities revolve around the Archaeology Society (recently renamed from Archaeology Club). A number of collaborativelearning activities are planned for the 2013–14 academic year including a journal club and archaeology writing program that will pair undergraduates with graduate students in mentoring relationships. More relaxed and social activities of the Archaeology Society include

22 | P a g e

museum trips, movie nights, and a Knapping Club, in which students practice stone-tool replication. During Spring 2013 four of our graduating seniors presented the results of their independent research at the Society for American Archaeology (SAA) annual meeting in Hawaii. Building from her work on the Guatemala field school and in our Microstratigraphy Laboratory, Meg Thibodeau presented the results of her honors thesis titled “Maya Pyrotechnology and Plaster: Integrating Micromorphology and Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) at San Bartolo and Xultun, Guatemala.” Nicholas Gauthier, building from his field experience in Turkey, presented the results of his honors thesis titled “Modeling Agropastoral Landscapes in the Marmara Lake Basin, Western Anatolia.” Omar Alcover Firpi presented the results of his honors thesis in a paper titled “Development of the 12H3 Pyramid in Xultun.” And Alex Kara presented a poster entitled “Total Station Mapping of Xultun, Guatemala.” Congrats to Meg, Nick, Omar, and Alex for presenting at this prestigious international conference!

GRADUATE HIGHLIGHTS PhD student Sara Belkin continued in her role as President of the Archaeology Graduate Student Association in 2012–2013. She initiated monthly meetings and allocated travel funds to students for travel to conferences. She also attended departmental meetings, reported graduate student concerns to faculty, and relayed the gist of our deliberations to her fellow graduate students. Graduate students host all departmental receptions following talks and play a large role on our Lecture Committee; they have their own outreach program and provide lectures and demonstrations for the public schools in the Greater Boston area. Our PhD students’ research has been featured in several media outlets (see Archaeology in the News); many received prestigious awards to support their research, and an impressive number published on their 23 | P a g e

work and gave papers at professional conferences. Our grad students, especially those who have served as Teaching Fellows, under the mentorship of Professor Runnels, are co-authoring an archaeology textbook for use in introductory archaeology courses. Four of our students successfully defended their dissertations this past year and have embarked on the post-PhD phase of their careers.

INVOLVEMENT IN THE BROADER ARCHAEOLOGICAL COMMUNITY Our MA and PhD students were also very active in the archaeological community outside of Boston University. Below are lists of student publications and papers presented at conferences.

OUTREACH Our faculty and students' commitment to public outreach is demonstrated through the many lectures they deliver to public schools.

Prof. Murowchick, for example, serves on the Asian

Studies Steering Committee for the Needham Public schools, and regularly lectures in schools in Needham and elsewhere; ICEAACH has an outreach program to the K–12, museum, and media communities. These programs promote awareness of serious problems facing our field today, including the accelerating destruction of archaeological sites and other forms of cultural heritage through poorly-planned construction projects, urban sprawl, and looting. Profs. Roosevelt and Luke work extensively with regional museums and local communities in rural Turkey, with the aims of increasing international understanding of local perspectives on material culture heritage and archaeological landscapes, and to increase local understanding of the value of preserving these.

They also work with local Chambers of Commerce and with

villagers and offer ecological and art workshops for children aged 10–15 to encourage local community members to see, value, and preserve the landscapes in which they live for their cultural and natural values.

Prof. Runnels and Research Fellow Priscilla Murray during the

academic year hold an open house every Friday in the department’s Gabel Museum for undergraduates and others who wish to gain hands-on experience working with artifacts and preparing interpretive exhibits for the display cases in the department’s hallways.


Carballo discussed archaeology with K-12 students at Robert F. Kennedy Lancaster School in Lancaster, Massachusetts. Our graduate student Outreach Committee is always ready to send a team of graduate students, artifact specimens in hand, to speak to primary and secondary schools, and every October, as part of Archaeology Month in Massachusetts, they sponsor Archaeology Day at Boston University, providing tours of our laboratories and demonstrations of how archaeologists study seeds and bones to learn about ancient diets and of artifact mending and other activities in which visitors are invited to participate.

THE MARY M. B. WAKEFIELD SUMMER ARCHAEOLOGICAL INSTITUTE In the summer of 2012, graduate students Sara Belkin and Jenny Wildt-Dixon co-directed the annual Wakefield Archaeological Summer Institute at the historic Wakefield Estate in Milton Massachusetts. This program provides hands-on archaeological experience for local high school students in Massachusetts. During the 2012 season, the group excavated the “summer house,” a garden pavilion of the type found in most eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century formal gardens in America and in Europe. During the month-long excavations, students found an early twentieth-century trash dump deposited within the summerhouse foundation. The finds recovered from the fill included dining and teaware, kitchen equipment, personal adornment, architectural, and agricultural artifacts.

While excavating in the field and

processing artifacts in the laboratory, the team received assistance from more than 20 BU graduate and undergraduate students. The materials recovered from the excavation will form the backbone of Sara Belkin’s dissertation work, which will explore the construction of identity along the individual, family, and community lines at the Wakefield Estate.

CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENTS Academic year 2012–13 was a busy one for our committee on Curriculum Reform, resulting in the preparation of a draft proposal for new degree programs (BA, MA, and BA/MA in Archaeological Heritage) and a revised set of requirements for the MA in Archaeology.


draft proposals have been submitted to Associate Dean for Undergraduate Affairs Susan Jackson and Associate Dean of Graduate Studies Jeffrey Hughes for preliminary review; we’ll continue to work on these proposals with input from the deans and from cognate and collaborating departments in the hopes of submitting revised versions of the proposals to the relevant curriculum committees and the Academic Policy Committee for formal review sometime in the upcoming academic year. Several new courses were approved this year, one of which, AN/AR510, Proposal Writing for Social Science Research, was offered by Prof. Marston in spring, 2013. This course is crosslisted and co-taught with Anthropology; it is offered every year, alternating instructors from Anthropology and Archaeology. Students who’ve taken or the course report having improved their proposal-writing skills enormously, and at least one, Kate Ness, attributes the success of her resubmission of a revised proposal for a NSF dissertation improvement grant in part to what she learned in Prof. Marston’s course. The proposal-writing course is the first step in developing a suite of courses that will focus on professional development for Archaeology MA and PhD students. To be offered this coming fall are two new courses, the first of which, AR200, Heritage Matters, was developed by Prof. Elia with the aim of providing a basic introduction for undergraduates to the burgeoning field of Archaeological Heritage studies and, should we find approval for a BA and BA/MA in Archaeological Heritage, it will be one of the core offerings for that degree program. Another exciting course development is Prof. Roosevelt’s AR507, Lay of the Land, a comprehensive introduction to archaeological mapping with hands-on training in use of equipment such as digital GPS and UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) and of software for GIS mapping and photogrammetry. Field trips will provide students with practical experience while providing them with the opportunity to map historical landscapes in the Boston area. Another new course on the books is AR201, Americas Before Columbus, which fills a gap in our area coverage by presenting the archaeological evidence for pre-Columbian cultures in Mesoamerica and in North and South America. Prof. Carballo developed the course but since he will be on leave as a Junior Fellow with the BU Center for the Humanities next year, its first offering is on hold. 32 | P a g e

FACILITIES AND INFRASTRUCTURE The major renovation project of the preceding year was the conversion of the department’s former darkroom and visual resource center (STO348) into an Environmental Archaeology Laboratory. This lab, directed by Prof. John M. Marston, is devoted to the study of human interactions with past environments, focusing on the analysis of archaeological plant and animal remains from sites worldwide spanning the Paleolithic to the recent historical period. The laboratory opened for research in May of 2013 following renovation and installation of new equipment. It is well equipped for the microscopic analysis of plant remains (seeds, wood charcoal, phytoliths, starch grains, and pollen), bone and shell, soil and pottery thin sections, and polished ceramic and metal sections, using multiple Leica transmission, incident light, and stereomicroscopes. Wet lab facilities allow the extraction of starch, phytolith, and pollen from artifacts and soil samples. Its comparative collections of seeds, wood charcoal, and pollen focus on the flora of the Mediterranean, Near East, and Central Asia, while comparative animal skeletons are mainly domestic and wild species of New England. Laboratory members and undergraduate volunteers have already rehoused and inventoried botanical comparative collections and will continue to expand the laboratory collections over the coming year and make them publically available online.

We now have the ability to create distance-learning courses and podcasts using the Echo360 digital recording technology recently installed in the Gabel Museum (STO253), with funding

34 | P a g e

from the College of Arts and Sciences and Prof. Danti’s grant from the U.S. State Department. The technology suite, which includes screen-capture, video, and audio recording tools, allows us to record lectures, presentations, and meetings that can be transmitted to a global audience. We have already begun to use the Echo360 equipment to record lectures for an Introduction to Archaeology module for Iraqi archaeology students at Mosul University, as part of Prof. Danti's Mosul Archaeology Project. Michael Hamilton, Laboratory Coordinator, continued to insure that our labs, storage spaces, and equipment are all in good order. His most challenging project over the past year was to oversee the environmental cleanup of our thin-section lab, where many spills of resin used to impregnate thin sections for microscopy had created a potentially hazardous working environment. All of our labs now meet the highest standards of safety and cleanliness. Our other renovation big renovation project was not to a lab but to the room that housed our Teaching Fellows. That space had grown increasingly worn and shabby and had been furnished with a miscellany of furniture salvaged from wherever we could find it. The room has now been freshly painted and carpeted and we’ve been able to provide additional desk space through the installation of “office-system” components that provide each student with an equal allotment of space as well as with locking file and storage drawers.

Each work-station also has an

adjustable—and comfortable—desk chair.

LOOKING FORWARD In August, 2013, we will welcome to the Department a new colleague, Dr. Catherine West, who will join us as Research Assistant Professor of Archaeology.

She is an anthropological

archaeologist whose research focuses on the effects of Holocene climate change and resource availability on prehistoric subsistence in Arctic and Subarctic ecosystems, particularly in coastal Alaska; and on how to apply the archaeological record to contemporary environmental issues. To address these questions, she employs zooarchaeological and stable isotope data in the context of historical ecology and evolutionary ecology to clarify the long-term relationship between hunter-gatherers and the Gulf of Alaska environment. She is committed to promoting the relevance of these data for indigenous communities and marine resource managers by participating in collaborative research projects inspired by contemporary environmental concerns. She’ll take up residence in a newly-refurbished office in the Department (STO339) and CAS230 will be renovated to serve as Prof. West’s Zooarchaeology Laboratory. Next year Prof. West will teach Zooarchaeology, Archaeological Science, and other courses she will develop in her areas of specialization. Next year the Department will complete its Academic Program Review, with a visit from an External Review Committee whose members will evaluate our curriculum, faculty and student research, facilities, and the overall impact of our collective efforts.

We look forward to

constructive dialog about our strengths and weaknesses and to receiving positive suggestions for improvement. In the fall we will welcome a diverse group of new undergraduate majors and MA and PhD students in the annual process of reinvigoration that makes it possible for members of the Department of Archaeology to convey to the next generations of researchers the highest standards of archaeological scholarship and techniques and to continue to make the exciting discoveries and contributions to archaeological knowledge.
