Acadia Centennial Lecture: Is Archaeology Still Relevant in the 21st Century?
Presented by Rebecca Cole-Will, Chief of Resource Management at Acadia National Park
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act. This Act transformed the practice of archaeology and change has been rapid and existential in the discipline since then. Rebecca Cole-Will will reflect on how archaeology has evolved, the current role of archaeology in the National Park Service, and where the study of the past may lead us in the future.
Rebecca Cole-Will is the Chief of Resource Management at Acadia National Park. She has done archaeological research in Maine and the Canadian Arctic and was the curator at the Abbe Museum before joining the National Park Service. Rebecca has a BA in anthropology from the University of Maine and an MA in anthropology from the University of Alberta.
