Explore Explore -Frontiers- in Archaeological Sciences 3: Rethinking the Paradigm October 7-9, 2022, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853 “Frontiers in Archaeological Sciences 3: Rethinking the Paradigm” represents an intervention - a venue to discuss, confront, and reshape the role of the archaeological sciences in archaeology for a new generation.
