"Our work has the potential to contribute to modern day problems, like climate change and agriculture, and our work shows that human societies and human beings are intelligent and creative, with or without outside influence from the most famous centers of civilization." (G. Fritz)
“The past really is a guide to the future. This is true in everything that we do in field research and science; everything we know is a result of observing what has happened already. We can only predict what’s going to happen. So knowing the past is the basic survival kit for surviving into the future. Knowing about the past means you’re going to be better able to anticipate what’s going to happen next. ... Projecting fantasy onto the past is just an excuse for projecting it onto the future, and projecting dystopia onto the future, catastrophic future, is no help any either." (D. Freidel)
