The Bane of Anthropology & Archaeology…

*Premiering at 1pm PST*

This episode will not be the most fun out of my videos, but it is one of the more important, as it lays the groundwork for one of the most essential rules in Archaeology and Anthropology. 

Looting… it’s a big problem.

Without these sets of ethics, and ways of viewing new and past discoveries, as well as what has been made absent from the record due to looting, must be repatriated and come back together if we are to do justice to the cultures and communities to which these items their ancestors created, or even in some cases, are the actual remains of the populations now living in the same area. 

There is a lot to learn about this, I do not cover it all here, but I encourage every one of you to never take an item from an archaeological site, a fossil site, or any location designated as a site for all humans to come to visit, and learn. 

Every piece that is taken is taken from all of us.

I am a Paleoanthropology Student, so far with two degrees, in Anthropology and Human Behavioral Science, pursuing my B.A and then my PhD I love to read (like a lot) and write, I love my family, and I adore anthropology! Remember, never stop exploring and never stop learning! There is always more to learn!
