Ask a ScienceBlogger (Out)

The Sb Overlordz have reinstated the Ask a ScienceBlogger feature. Now, Dear Reader, you already ask me a lot of questions in comments here on Aard. But to give your archaeology questions (and possible my replies) a bit more exposure, you might post your question as a comment on the blog entry linked to above, or email it to editorial@scienceblogs.com.

    How old does a site have to be to be considered significant for archaeological investigation in Sweden? In the states it is 50 years as per the requirements of the National Register of Historic Places.

    A good question and one that the profession kind of wrestles with, actually. I wrote about it last year.
