Editorial Reviews


This book provides an excellent introduction to the field of 'extra-academic,' or Cultural Resource Management (CRM) archaeology, the applied branch of the field that employs the vast majority of American archaeologists today. It should be a useful text in all university courses that address the development and practices of contemporary CRM archaeology across the U.S.. I highly recommend it to colleagues in both academic and non-academic settings alike. (James B. Petersen, (University of Vermont))

The authors have produced the first guide to the process of identification, evaluation, excavation, and reporting of archaeological resources in a regulatory context. Emphasizing real-world issues, this is an outstanding handbook for archaeology's fastest growing field. (American Archaeology)

Cultural Resources Archaeology is the most approachable, reassuring and pursuasive introduction suitable both for students and prospective clients. onsidering the economic importance of contract, development or rescue archaeology, it is a wonder that no such book has been published before. The archaeological profession, legislation, and project development and management are set out in clear and cogent steps, 'bullet points', diagrams, tips on further reading, glossary and all. With its eye on how things are done, the book is specifically for the USA; but the point is well taken for other countries too. (Nicholas James Antiquity)

The book should deepen any archaeology student's understanding of what goes into practicing CRM. For professors, the book makes an "ideal teaching tool." For reader who are already professional archaeologists, the accompanying training manual provides more detailed analysis of each of the text's topics. (Environmental Law, Vol 32.549 (October 2002))

This book is a sound investment in both time and money that will reward you with a deeper understanding of the complex world of contract archaeology. It may even save you from learning some important lessons the hard way, which would make it worth your while even at ten times the price. (Environmental Practice)

The first and only guide to the practice of archaeology in the regulatory context. This well-written and authoritative text demystifies the processes of discovery, evaluation,full-scale excavation, and reporting. Sure to become a standard text in the field of CRM. I heartily recommend it. (Adrian Praetzellis, (Sonoma State University))

This book helps fill a much-needed niche in American archaeology. . . .This book is necessary for all students, academics, and professional archaeologists to understand the often complex world of compliance CRM archaeology in a North American setting. Even in the Pacific region, an understanding of the Section 106 process is essential as many former protectorates and trust territories of the U.S. have adopted U.S. federal protocols for all historic properties in their countries. I highly recommend this book to upper-level undergraduate and graduate students as they probably will have occasion to work in a CRM setting, at least once within their career. (William R. Belcher, U.S. Army Central Identification Laboratory, Hawaii American Antiquity, Vol. 68 No. 3 July 2003)

Cultural Resources Archaeology is likely to be a standard against which future texts are judged. (Patrick Hogan, University of New Mexico Journal Of Anthropological Research, Vol. 59, 2003)

Format: Paperback
_Cultural Resources Archaeology: An Introduction_ focuses specifically on the kind of archaeology done on projects under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA). These are the kinds of projects generally done as mitigation for projects (generally that disturb the land, such as roads, buildings, powerlines, etc.) that are done a) on federal lands, b) using federal funds, AND/OR c) requiring federal permits (wetlands require Army Corps of Engineers permitting, or cell towers require FCC permits, etc.). This sort of archaeological work is the most frequent kind of archaeological project done in the U.S.Read more ›
