(p.1) 1 Introduction
The Archaeology of Removal in North America

Terrance Weik

University Press of Florida

This introductory chapter by Terrance Weik provides a broad perspective on the multiple scholarly discourses, historical experiences, and related phenomena that are associated with removal. A working definition is articulated that embraces the plurality of ways dispossession and forced migration are manifest, conceptualized, and pursued. This chapter situates removal within a body of social theories as well as archaeological practices. Previous research that has set the stage for this volume is considered, ranging from clearance to dam archaeology.

Keywords:   archaeology, dispossession, forced migration
