This exhibit recognizes and highlights those voices that have too long been buried beneath the dominant narratives in archaeology. Hidden Figures aims to recognize the lives, scholarship, contributions, and stories of archaeologists from minority or historically marginalized communities to archaeological research, past and present.
Throughout Rhode Island Hall, [email protected] have placed images and biographies of some of the hidden figures in archaeology. We invite you to find them (some are more hidden than others - look carefully!), to learn about their lives and contributions to our field, and to suggest the names of others you would like to add to our exhibit.
