Archeology and the Federal Government.
Smith, George S., Comp.; And Others
CRM BUlletin, v11 spec iss Jul 1988
The U.S. Government's concern for preservation of important archeological properties began during the 19th century in response to the destruction and looting of Indian ruins in the U.S. Southwest. Since that time, the breadth of this concern has grown to include the consideration of impact to archeological properties, as well as to other kinds of cultural resources, by most Federal activities. This issue of the CRM Bulletin provides a comprehensive description of the federal government's involvement in the interpretation, management and preservation of the U.S. archeological heritage. A wide range of agencies and activities are involved in federal archeology at the national, state, and local levels, and all of the archeological work this encompasses is referred to as the Federal Archeology Program. The following articles are included: "Managing Our Nation's Archeological Resources for Future Generations" (Jerry L. Rogers); "Current Directions in the Federal Archeology Program" (Bennie C. Keel); "The Society for American Archeology and the Federal Archeology Program" (Kathleen M. Reinburg); "Society of Professional Archeologists and the Federal Archeology Program: Standards" (J. Ned Woodall); "State Historic Preservation Officers and the Federal Archeology Program" (Valerie Talmadge); "History of the Federal Archeology Program" (Edwin C. Bears); "Federal Archeology in Indian Country" (Donald R. Sutherland); "The Lake Clark Sociocultural Project" (Ted Birkedal); "Public Participation in Archeological Investigations on Federal Lands" (Jilia O. Elmendorf); "Public Awareness of Federal Archeology" (adapted from a handbook); Arizona Archeology Week: Expanding Public Awareness through a Federal and State Partnership" (Teresa L. Hoffman); and "Looters of the Past: An Enforcement Problem in the Pacific Northwest" (Lynell Schalk). There is also a series of brief descriptions of how various departments and agencies intersect with the Federal Archeology Program, as well as a brief concluding article on awards for archeological achievement by Robert F. Crecco. (DB)
