Abstract

Tainter and Lucas (1983) have given us a cogent and useful critique of the "significance concept" that is a fundamental part of historic preservation and "conservation archeology" as practiced in the United States. I have no real disagreement with their arguments or with their conclusions, although I am not sure they can be operationalized.
