Mapping Near-Historical Climate Impacts to Coastal Sites (2016)
Historical archaeologists examine material culture dating to the industrial period, which spawned human-induced climate change. We are uniquely positioned to examine changes through the material record. Additionally archeologists have been making and recording observations about the condition of sites for many years. Archeologists in the National Park Service (NPS) have, in doing so, inadvertently left their own record of climate change effects. These observations are stored in NPS’s...
Site Monitoring at Fort Eustis, Virginia (2018)
Since 2010 the Fort Eustis Cultural Resources Management staff has been conducting a program of annual site monitoring visits in which each of the more than 200 known archaeological sites on Fort Eustis is visited at least once a year. The monitoring program has provided a baseline knowledge of site conditions and regular opportunities to observe any disturbance. This paper will discuss the benefits of site monitoring at Fort Eustis, including how improved knowledge of the landscape and...
Using Site Condition Data to Manage Heritage Sites for Climate Change Impacts (2016)
Heritage sites worldwide are threatened by human action and inaction; archaeologists are observers of the era of human-induced global change. We are specially positioned to use our data to examine such change through the material record. Additionally, archaeologists have been recording observations about the condition of sites for many years, even if those observations are not always intended to monitor site condition or integrity. Archaeologists in the National Park Service have, in maintaining...
