Title: More Backdirt and Bureaucracy: New Data on Archaeological Practice in New Brunswick
Abstract
Since the creation of the New Brunswick Clean Environment Act in 1987 and the subsequent creation of an archaeology industry pertaining to environmental impact assessment-related work (Cultural Resource Management), there has been a dramatic shift in the character of archaeological field work conducted in New Brunswick. In a discipline now overwhelmingly populated by consulting archaeologists—an industry the New Brunswick government’s Archaeological Services Branch (ASB) now both participates in and regulates—the impetus has grown to review and analyze trends in permitting data associated with the changes to New Brunswick’s archaeological practice. The APANB-AAPNB Ltd. Board of Directors received New Brunswick’s data for permits issued between 1984 and 2016 from ASB (the 2006-2016 data was procured through a Right to Information and Protection of Privacy Act request) and have conducted some trend analysis using this data.
