From institutional futures and archaeological pedagogy in the United States to the character and scope of Mediterranean archaeology to differences in field practices between Greece and Armenia, Susan Alcock and John Cherry lay out the rudiments of where things stand in contemporary archaeology and where they believe them to be going. Alcock and Cherry discuss what an archaeological institute should be, from their own vantage point at Brown University. In so doing, they provide a rich vision for the discipline. Innovators in the archaeology of Greece, they also discuss why they chose to establish a field project in Armenia. Here, they delve into the future of regional field survey and the research questions now possible. They also reflect on the problems facing archaeology in Greece.
