This is an article on a Native American site unable to escape the typical pitfalls of being impacted. Unfortunately, this is the type of thing that happens everyday all over the world to our cultural resources. All sites can't be saved, but in this case measures should to be taken to prevent the process of a runway extension for the airport. The more these important sites are destroyed, the less archaeologists can learn about our earlier cultures.
Many new and interesting developments and program implementation through the Lincoln County Historical Association, and Lincoln County Museum of History are in the anticipated future.
I am the new Curator of Archaeology and Collections for the museum, and I am very excited about my new position. My varied background includes working for cultural resource firms, museums, and historical organizations. I am originally from Gastonia, NC and I have many varied interests. My research interests are specifically oriented toward "backcountry" studies and using the holistic approach known as landscape archaeology to study and interpret sites. I am also very interested in researching the Protohistoric Catawba history in the vicinity of Lincoln County, NC.
As the new curator, I will be keeping a blog to increase public awareness of important issues in relation to various issues relating to questions concerning collections care, historical architecture, local history, and archaeology. If anyone is interested in a discussion on a certain topic, the inquiries can be sent to the blog, or my e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will discuss the issues that are most significant.
