This thoroughly researched study discusses two archaeological undertakings—the Deir Alla Joint Archaeological Project in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and the Santa Barbara Project in Curaçao.  The author offers a critical reflection on the role and responsibility of archaeologists in relation to the values and demands of other actors in society. Digging Holes Abroad contributes to critical debates in archaeology that call for a self-reflexive, ethnographic archaeology that actively engages with community concerns.
