One of our occasional OAC contributors, Michael C. Smith is co-author of a paper "Archeology as a Social Science" published this week in the U.S. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The timing couldn't be better for me, since I will now be able to cite it as a reference for a suggestion in an upcoming conference paper that cultural anthropologists become more like archeologists, using the latest science (in my case network analysis) to contextualize findings from participant-observation, documentary research, and depth interviews.

this is very exciting - would our observations be so much more insightful if, like archaeologists, we could 'trace exactly where the rocks came from'. good stuff.
