Uppdragsarkeologiska möjligheter. Nya sätt att tänka om en samtidsverksamhet i en framtidsbransch

Anders Högberg

Abstract


In this text we discuss how Swedish contract archaeology can develop its socialengagement by creating new areas of relevance to society, beyond the generalactivities of disseminating results. We do so by giving concrete examples of howthis can be done, using archaeological excavations as a starting point. The examplesinclude engaging the local community in future planning for a social sustainableliving environment, collaboration with the tourism sector, development of teachingmaterials for secondary schools, memory training for people with acquired braindamage, and school programs focusing on a socially sustainable and inclusive society.The purpose of the text is to inspire change, by showing development opportunitiesfor future contract archaeology that will benefit both performers and recipients,and contribute to society’s multifaceted needs.
