Abstract

The history of archaeology does not necessarily include "Who, What, When, and Where?" Despite the common sense of begin­ning from details that are among the easiest to establish. many histories distort this groundwork in behalf of "scientific context. The result is a history biased in behalf of the persons or institutions of greatest power during the period of advance. Archaeolo­gists often recognize the colleague that publicizes and gains acceptance for ideas/finds when the process of discovery actually involves many factors within and outside of the elite circle of status-holding archaeologists.
