As discussed in our reading for this week, contemporary archaeology grapples with important questions and tensions regarding ownership of the past.

First, do you think significant findings from the past, such as the Discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., ideally belong to everyone, or just to the people who find them?

Second, briefly describe in your own words what NAGPRA is and how it affects archaeologists in the U.S.

Finally, briefly explain who The Ancient One/Kennewick Man is. For you personally, what are the most persuasive points in favor of the scientists? What are the most persuasive points in favor of the Native (First Nations) people involved in the lawsuit? Which side do you lean towards and why?
