Looking for the Future in the Past: Archaeology's Long-Term View

ASU archaeologists and Sustainability Scientists Dave Abbott, Michael Barton, Michelle Hegmon, Ben Nelson, Peggy Nelson, Mike Smith, Kate Spielmann, and doctoral students present case studies that look at how archaeology can contribute new and innovative ways of using the past to inform the decisions we make about the future. The projects demonstrate the advantages of a long-term view versus short-term perspectives on sustainability.

The faculty believes that ancient and historical material, particularly archaeological evidence, can make significant contributions in the transformation of contemporary society to a more sustainable trajectory.
