Description/Abstract

'Community archaeology' is a relatively new sub-field of research in archaeology that aims to involve local people in the investigation and interpretation of the past. Based on the creation of a community archaeology research project in Quseir, Egypt, a general methodology for facilitating effective community involvement in the study of the archaeological resource is proposed. This strategy involves seven components, including communication and collaboration, employment and training, public presentation, interviews and oral history, educational resources, a photographic and video archive, and community controlled merchandising.
