- Abstract: Historical archaeology, as a relatively young sub-discipline of archaeology,
has borrowed it's interpretive theories and perspectives from the realms of prehistoric
archaeology and social anthropology. The first part of this paper will examine several
of these borrowed theories and the explanations they produce regarding past lifeways
and behavior. Secondly, this paper will address the types of information historical
data are able to yield in the interpretation of archaeology at a historic site. Lastly,
the explanations for past behavior afforded by the borrowed theories will be compared
to the answers historical data can provide to determine each theory's applicability
for historical archaeology. The predictive nature of archaeology theory is readily
applied to the prehistoric, but does the presence of historical data negate their
application to historic periods.

- Abstract: This study was concerned with discovering if different religious orientations,
such as Fundamentalism, Orthodoxy, and Quest, related to acceptance of nontraditional
(interracial and homosexual) relationships. Ninety-one university students, 44 males
and 45 females, ranging in age from 17 to 42, participated for credit in a class.
The participants were administered an Attitude Questionnaire (Sebby & Christopher,
1997), an Inventory of Religion (Sebby & Christopher, 1997), the Quest Scale (Altemeyer
& Hunsberger, 1992), McFarland's (1989) Fundamentalism Scale, and the Christian Orthodoxy
Scale (Hunsberger, 1989). Significant correlations (p < .05) indicated that individuals
with a Fundamentalist orientation describe themselves as more religious than individuals
with a Quest orientation. Individuals with a Quest orientation were more tolerant
and accepting of individuals involved in homosexual relationships than were Fundamentalist
or Orthodox individuals. No significant gender differences were obtained. The results
of this research, however, are limited by the fact that all participants were college
students at a Midwestern university and by the small sample size.
