Abstract

One of the aspects of 20th century archaeology in America that would undoubtedly perplex our 19th century predecessors is the extreme intellectual distance between Americanist, anthropological archaeologists and our counterparts who work in the classical world. We belong to different profes­sional societies, publish in different journals. occupy different academic departments, and draw our inspiration from different intellectual sources. Crossovers exist, but are comparatively rare, and are viewed with suspicion by all. One of my professors once announced to a seminar that if classical archaeologists didn't start doing something interesting, we would "have to take over."
