Northeast Anthropology, Archaeological Landscapes: Scale, Technology, and Emerging Approaches

AVAILABLE NOW!

FROM NORTHEAST ANTHROPOLOGY

The 2015 volume of Northeast Anthropology, Archaeological Landscapes: Scale, Technology, and Emerging Approaches, is a memorial to Albert A. Dekin, Jr.  The volume is now available for order at the journal’s the web site (albany.edu/northeast_anthropology).
This guest edited volume includes 11 case studies by Dekin’s former students. Dekin was a significant educator and mentor who trained a number of academic, government agency, and Cultural Resource Management archaeologists.  He was nationally influential in shaping CRM policy with strong input from anthropologically-oriented archaeology.  His leadership extended to the presidency of the New York Archaeological Council, numerous applied archaeology projects, and a variety of publications on ethics, training, research design, and the process of cultural resource management.  The strength and breadth of his influence is reflected in the group of contributors to the book, who, in many ways, follow his perspective that archaeological investigation should be anthropologically informed and relevant.  The papers in the volume are centered on three major themes that were the core of Dekin’s work and are central to current research in the archaeology of North America: scale, landscape, and technology and material culture.

The Funk Foundation 2016 Grant Cycle

The Robert E. Funk Memorial Archaeology Foundation, Inc. is initiating a 2016 grant application and funding cycle for grants of up to $2,000.00. The Funk Foundation grants support archaeological research in New York State, and are ideal to assist stand-alone research projects or studies that are parts of larger projects. For example, Funk Foundation grants have been used successfully to support a range of services such as faunal analysis, radiocarbon dating, petrographic slides, and remote sensing.

Grant applications must be received by April 15, 2016. The grant application will be reviewed by the Funk Foundation Board of Directors with award decisions made by June 15, 2016. For the 2016 grant cycle, we intend to fund grants for two applicants. For each grant award, the Foundation will issue a check to the recipient for 80% of the grant amount when the grant is awarded. The final 20% will be paid when the completed report of the grant research is received. Further information including the grant application forms is found on the Funk Foundation website at www.funkfoundation.org.  The 2016 grant application forms will be posted during March, 2016. If you have any questions, please email Funk Foundation President Ed Curtin at ecurtin12003@yahoo.com, or call Ed at (518) 884-7102.
