Scientific Sessions

Archeological Science

It is intended to give a wide hypothetical and down to earth comprehension of current issues and the procedures archeologists use to explore the human past Archeology incorporates the investigation of past societies through examination of physical remains. Basically, physical remains are bones of early individuals and also their produced apparatuses, merchandise (relics), and the establishments of settlements. Archeometry has enormously affected present day prehistoric studies. Archeologists can get huge extra information and data utilizing these systems, and archaeometry can possibly overhaul the comprehension of the past.

  • Isotope analysis
  • Palynology
  • Radiocarbon dating
  • Zooarchaeology
  • Geoarchaeology
  • Bioarchaeology
  • Archaeogenetics

Archeology by Period

It covers rundown of Archeological periods shift colossally from locale to district. The three-age framework has been utilized as a part of numerous zones, alluding to the ancient and verifiable periods recognized by device make and use, of Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. Chronicled periods signifies times of human improvement with the benefit of the advancement of composing. Archeologists and history specialists put the Stone Age as that time of human advancement when the vast majority of the apparatuses utilized by people were produced using stone. The proof accessible to us right now demonstrates that while the this period of early human advancement occurred in various parts of the globe, the dates for the Stone Age was diverse for various parts of the world.

Archeological Theory

It refers to the various intellectual frameworks through which archaeologist interpret archaeological data. Archaeologists are able to develop accurate, objective information about past societies by applying the scientific method to their investigations, Archaeology has been and remains a cultural, gender and political battlefield. Some groups have tried to use archaeology to prove some current cultural or political point. Much contemporary archaeology is influenced by neo-Darwinian evolutionary thought, phenomenology, postmodernism, agency theory, cognitive science, functionalism, gender-based and Feminist archaeology and Systems theory.

Methods for Archeological Investigation

It is a physical examination of the place completed by a properly qualified individual with the end goal of exploring, recording or monitoring archeological relics on the place. The techniques utilized by archeologists to accumulate information can be connected to whenever period, including the exceptionally later past. In this area of Methods of Gathering Data individuals will figure out how archeologists accumulate and investigate data by using authentic research systems, field strategies for information recuperation, and lab examinations.

  • Field survey
  • Excavation

Applied Anthropology

It uses the theories, methods, and ethnographic findings of anthropology to solve human problems. Applied anthropology is the praxis-based side of anthropological research; it includes researcher involvement and activism within the participating community. Applied Anthropologists can take on different roles in their work, such as researchers, policy analysts, program evaluators, change agents, managers, consultants etc. it has a huge variety of applications, and is often used to help solve global problems. The Society for Applied Anthropology aspires to promote the integration of anthropological perspectives and methods in solving human problems throughout the world; to advocate for fair and just public policy based upon sound research.

Culture and Enculturation

The material world is crucial in processes of enculturation and cultural transmission, in shaping daily experience and perceptions, and in orienting action.  Material culture is examined as it is commonly understood today in archeology and material culture studies. Enculturation is the process where the culture that is currently established teaches an individual the accepted norms and values of the culture or society where the individual lives.  Furthermore, the diverse roles of material culture in relation to cognition are explored through specific examples from prehistoric, historic, and contemporary societies.

Technological and economic variables are assessed in the analysis of society of culture. Anthropologists find that cultural values and norms also influence technology and economic conditions. Research includes such areas as social structure, including the family, marriage, kinship, gender, and age. Religion is studied for its diversity of worldviews. Myths, rituals, religious specialists, beliefs, and religious movements are explored in relationship to other aspects of society.

Urban Anthropology

Urban human studies, the investigation of current social frameworks and characters in urban communities and also the different political, social, monetary, and social powers that shape urban structures and procedures. These days, there is a developing enthusiasm among anthropologists to do urban research that takes a gander at both the legislature of the city and the occupants' portrayals of the city. Urbanity is incomprehensibly guaranteed as one of the primary traits of Modernity when urban communities are weakening and scattering. Customs of research that archive the miniaturized scale territories of day by day life are settled in investigations of relocation, informal organizations, streetcorner inner circles, neighborhoods, political procedures, dealers and business people, vocations, supporter—customer relations, willful affiliations, religious assemblages, open functions, urban celebrations, bureaucratic experiences and social developments. As are more all encompassing endeavors to expound structures and characteristics of urbanism, the country—urban continuum, assorted heterogenetic and customary orthogenetic urban focuses, territorial and transnational social requests, advertising systems, measurements of scale and specialization, spatial imagery, and the diverse spaces of urban life. Urban humanities tried to think about bigger urban communities, it confronted the issues of what strategies to use to make its exploration substantial.

Museums, Heritage and Conservation
 
It provides an unparalleled exploration of ethics and museum practice, considering the controversies and debates which surround key issues such as provenance, ownership, cultural identity, environmental sustainability and social engagement. Using a variety of case studies which reflect the internal realities and daily activities of museums as they address these issues, from exhibition content and museum research to education, accountability and new technologies, this enables a greater understanding of the role of museums as complex and multifaceted institutions of cultural production, identity-formation and heritage preservation.

Archaeological Ethics & Laws

It refers to the moral issues raised through the study of the material past. Archeological resources, both sites and collections, are protected by law on federal and state lands. A common ethical issue in modern archaeology has been the treatment of human remains found during  Excavations, especially those that represent the ancestors of aboririnal groups in the New world or the remains of other minority races elsewhere. The problem in archaeological ethics covers, protecting Archaeological sites and objects from illegal trade, Balancing World, National and regional claims to various parts of the archaeological record, Responsibility of the Archaeologist vis-a-vis the architectural remains that have been uncovered during an excavation etc.

Current issues and controversies

Controversies are common in the scientific world and Archaeology is no exception.  From the meanings of cave paintings to the last moments of mummified ice men, archaeology has provided a vast palate of controversies by which inquisitive minds struggle to uncover truth. Subsequently we will explore some ethical and scientific controversies in contemporary archaeology that are more challenging, and require not only skepticism, but also an understanding for how archaeologists confront the conflicts that develop within the discipline and the consequences for the wider public. We will also discuss ongoing controversies in archaeology that contemporary scholars are working to resolve.
