The Janus Face of Removal

(p.216) 9 The Janus Face of Removal
The Archaeology of Removal in North America

Charles E. Orser

University Press of Florida

Removal is two-faced. It simultaneously presents disaster and opportunity. Its effects may leave permanent scars on the landscape and within the minds of individuals and their descendants who suffered removal at the hands of others. Archaeologists paradoxically can benefit by removal to the extent that the remains discovered at past habitation sites may reveal realities left unmentioned or purposely silenced in textual sources. The Great Famine of the 1840s in Ireland provides an example of the Janus face of removal.
