Archaeological Heritage Management: The Last and Next Half Century

Canadian Journal of Archaeology, Volume 42, No 1 (2018)
Ronald F. Williamson

This article is part of the Canadian Journal of Archaeology’s Special Edition celebrating the Canadian Archaeological Association’s 50th anniversary. Williamson takes a look back at the last fifty years of commercial archaeology in Canada, and how it has developed from a budding to a thriving industry in a matter of decades. This transformation also offers a lens to look forward, and make a few observations about the use of research questions in commercial archaeology and dissemination of what is learned, and the escalating role of free and prior informed consent in land use development.
