Homepage of the Department of archaeology at Simon Frazer University:

Since Leslie Knapp’s chairship at the University of Utah has been celebrating with replacing of science by laboratorization of the Department of Anthropology, University of Utah, and absence of visible respect to the faculty, a research has started to see whether there is a case of similar activity, or it is a sort of innovation which has roots elsewhere. Although the task is to rescue science at the University of Utah, in fact the project has turned to a very exciting journey through the academic anthropological websites all over the world.

An example of most impressive scientific standing at this moment is the website of Department of Archaeology at Simon Frazer University.

It looks the researchers have been taking seriously the university seats, as well as have been respected by their chair, Dr. David Burney. All associated with the faculty have been listed respectfully including the faculty, adjunct faculty, Associate Faculty, Post-Doctoral Fellows, Limited term lecturer, Visiting scholars, and staff.

The archaeologists can see amazing publications on archaeology from all over the world. In fact the faculty websites with the list of the publications of the affiliated scholars are the primary source for gathering bibliographies on any scientific project.

A few publications from Simon Frazer University website below have been cited just to illustrate how seriously the scholars there have been taking the mission of serious science without any compromises:
