This quote comes from interview article in the British newspaper, The Guardian. Sarah Marsh asked Stephen Dean about the value of archaeology to communities. Dean explained:
Archaeology gives a sense of place. It grounds us within the landscape and every place is unique. The problem is when you strip that historic character out people just do not know how to act. Heritage grounds people and gives rules to work by, and archaeology is part of that. Archaeology can also give an understanding of where we come from.
Talking about his team, Dean also said, “I work with a conservation officer dealing with the built environment, a landscape officer looking at broad landscape and a historic environment officer who records and maintains everything we know about the county. You should never take the historic environment separately. There is a lot of crossover so we can cover each other's approach as and when necessary.”
