A Final Thought for Archeologists and Interpreters
An archeologist's knowledge of techniques for interpreting archeological resources is one of the most important elements in helping visitors understand their value and fragility. The archeologist must care about both the archeological resource and facilitating interpretive opportunities and outcomes if he or she wishes to inspire caring in others.
Archeologists who have little interpretive experience or few opportunities to interact directly with visitors may benefit from applying the Interpretive Equation to programs they present-alone or in concert with park interpretive staff-to a variety of park visitors. Learning to apply appropriate interpretive tools allows the archeologist to effectively engage interpreters and visitors and promote interest, participation, and stewardship.
