SPI was recently featured in the article, “Research, Preservation, and Education: An Introduction to Various Heritage Centers, Organizations, and Projects” in Archaeologies: Volume 7, Issue 2 (2011), Page 423-453.
This article, written by Professor Alicia Ebbitt McGill at the Department of Anthropology at Indiana University, discusses the work being done by various types of preservation organizations and heritage centers. Check out the link below!
Among all these organizations and projects, SPI’s model stands out as one focused on the local communities. We concentrate on the people living in and around these endangered archaeological sites, not simply the sites themselves.
Why not empower the community and preserve cultural heritage at the same time? Cutting-edge and common sense.
