An Archaeology of Eurocentrism

  • Charles E. Orser (a1)


The role of Europe and Europeans in the archaeology of post-1500 history has recently been critiqued. Some research has been pejoratively labeled Eurocentrism. This paper addresses the problems with adopting an emotional understanding of Eurocentrism and argues instead for its archaeological examination within the framework of an explicit multiscalar modern-world (historical) archaeology. An example comes from seventeenth-century Dutch settlements located in and around present-day Albany, New York.


Hace poco se criticó el papel de europa y los europeos en la arqueología después de 1500. Algunas investigaciones han sido prejudicialmente designado eurocéntricos. Este artículo se dirige a los problemas de adoptar un conocimiento puramente ideológico del eurocentrismo y en su lugar argumenta que se examina dentro un marco explícito de escalas múltiples de la arqueología del mundo histórico y moderno. Se proporciona un ejemplo de los asentamientos holandeses del siglo diecisiete localizados en los circundantes de Albany, Nueva York, pero también esta perspectiva es importante para los arqueólogos que analizan la época antes del contacto.
