Philadelphia and the Development of Americanist Archaeology
Don D. Fowler (ed); David R. Wilcox (ed)
Philadelphians have long been involved in archaeological research. In particular, three venerable cultural institutions -- The Amer. Philosophical Soc., the Acad. of Natural Sciences, & the Univ. Museum of the Univ. of PA -- have nurtured the “systematic study of antiquities.” These 10 essays focus on Philadelphians who were concerned with Americanist archaeology, or the “archaeology of the New World.” Includes scholars such as: Benjamin Barton, Peter Duponceau, Thomas Jefferson, Daniel Brinton, John Wesley Powell, & Benjamin Rush, as did pioneering women Sara Stevenson & Lucy Wilson. Other essays detail the contributions of C.C. Abbott, Frank Cushing, Clarence Moore, Edgar Hewett, & John Cotter. Illustrations.
