Abstract

Archaeology practiced within an Urban Setting is often more challenging than archaeology practiced in more rural settings because of the challenges to excavation (i.e. there’s lots of asphalt, existing utilities, cars, buildings and people). Salem’s urban archaeology program is designed to work within this setting to ensure that current development projects comply with existing laws protecting archaeological resources. Join us to see how their process works through a real world example, including the public education and interpretation about the archaeological work on the development site.
