"In situ" is a Latin phrase meaning "in the place:. According to current archaeological usage, "in situ" refers to an artifact that has not been moved from its original place of deposition. In other words, it is still where it was left. An artifact being in situ is critical to the interpretation of that artifact and, consequently, to the culture which formed it. Once an artifact’s ‘find-site’ has been recorded, the artifact can then be moved for conservation, further interpretation and display. An artifact that is not discovered "in situ" is considered out of context and will not provide an accurate picture of the associated culture. But what if the artifact isn’t from a human culture? Could we, as humans, possibly understand it? If not, what might we mistake it for? Whether it’s 19th century scholars finding an alien artifact at an a dig site in the Mediterranean, or 25th century explorers uncovering ancient ruins on a recently discovered planet, far out in space, In Situ seeks to unearth something new.
