It’s a special issue on “The Archaeology of the Human Experience.” Articles: “The Archaeology of the Human Experience” by Michelle Hegmon. “Challenging Our Questions: Toward an Archaeology of Food Security” by Amanda Logan. The Social Costs of Sustainability in the Faroe Islands, by Seth Brewington. “Security in the City”,by Timothy Dennehy. “Agricultural Intensification and Long-Term Changes in Human Well-Being”,by Laura Swsntek and Jacob Freeman. “Human Securities and Tewa Origins” by Scott G. Ortman. There are also two nice articles in this issue in the “Editor’s Corner” and “From The President” sections. They discuss the impacts on archaeology by what happens in Washington, the need to demonstrate archaeology’s usefulness in terms of shedding light on current issues and the broad human condition, and other issues. At the time the president was putting together his column for this issue, he wrote: “.... the United States government is entering the second week of a government shutdown with no end in sight.”
