PROCEEDINGS OF THE SOCIETY OF PHILIPPINE ARCHAEOLOGISTS VOLUME 4 (published 2006)

In this fourth volume of the Proceedings, we present a site report written by a team of KAPI members and collaborators. It is a rescue archaeology scheme in the heart of Manila was surrounded by much controversy. This project is a good example of the complex position a community of archaeologists finds itself at a time when heritage concerns are accepted by citizens and the state. The space for this introduction is hardly big enough to give a good representation of the issues involved and the way it was resolved. As a guild of professional archaeologists, it was paramount that we address the issue of rescuing archaeology above any other advocacy. This was the reason why we accepted the challenge of organizing the excavation report within this volume. The insights we learned in the social dynamics observed during the excavation at the Aroceros Forest Park Site are premium reflection components for all parties involved. We can aim as well as hope for better practice from archaeologists, heritage advocates and government in similar situations to come.
