Orphaned Archaeological Collections: Issues and their research and public outreach value
presented by Kali D.V Oliver,
M.A. candidate in Anthropology at the University of Idaho
What happens when archaeological collections are improperly collected and housed in unstable environments for decades? In conjunction with the Fort Walla Walla Museum and in partnership with the John Wainwright Memorial Veterans Administration Medical Center, Ms. D.V. Oliver will talk about her work assessing and re-housing the orphaned, Hussey Collection. The Hussey Collection represents over a 20 year period of archaeological work in Walla Walla, Washington. She will be speaking specifically about the use value in researching such collections as tools for local institutions and communities to promote public outreach and civic engagement activities.
