04.05.2010 - ICAHM is a co-sponsor with NASA for a symposium at the 2010 Society for American Archaeology Conference in St. Louis, Missouri, April 14-18, 2010, entitled, "The Archaeology of Perspective." The ten papers in the symposium will examine how perspective, or viewshed, has worked in cultures from many different places and times to convey, replicate, and sometimes alter the social order, setting in place norms, customs, traditions, and, ultimately, institutions. Most of the research reported on here has involved the use of digital elevation models (DEMs) obtained from NASA satellites and aircraft, which provide the basis for modelling the surface of the earth, as well as radar and multispectral images that provide information about environmental setting and the locations of related archaeological sites and features. All of the archaeological sites and landscapes with which these papers will deal can be considered monumental in nature.

01.17.2010 - ICAHM Condemns Proposed Sale of Possible Native American Human Remains by Christie's - The ICOMOS Scientific Committee on Archaeological Heritage Management (ICAHM) condemns the proposed auction of unidentified human remains by Christie's auction house, which is scheduled to occur on January 22, 2010 (lot 157 / sale 2287). Because these human remains were in the possession of the Yale Skull and Bones Society, there is a distinct possibility that they are those of a Native American. Native American remains looted by undergraduate members of that society are reputed to include those of Geronimo.
