Join us for Season 5, Episode 7 of the Peabody Diggin’ In series – Archaeologies of Home-Making with "Home-Less" Communities

In 2014, dozens of residents of the public park called the Albany Bulb clashed with the City of Albany over their rights to home and belongings on public land. Ultimately, the city won out, and residents either left with a small check and a stay-away order or watched their homes get "cleaned up" by maintenance crews. The material remains of the exceptionally long and permanent residences in the park attest to the care and meaning with which they made their homes. In this talk, Dr. Ann Danis discusses how community based archaeology of the contemporary mobilized the inherent power of archaeological recording to assert these supposedly home-less peoples' right to be remembered.
