Intentional Site Burial: a Technique to Project Against Natural or Mechanical Loss

Author(s): Robert M. Thorne

Year: 1989


This is the second technical brief in the series on site stabilization and maintenance developed through cooperation

among the Center for Archaeological Research at the University of Mississippi, the Tennessee Valley Authority, and

the National Park Service. The series is based upon existing knowledge and stabilization project experiences to provide programmatic guidance appropriate for problem solving. As baseline information, the series demonstrates the highly variable conditions surrounding archeological site loss, discusses alternatives, and suggests how applicable

stabilization techniques can be modified to meet needs.

Information exchange is an important objective of this series. The National Clearinghouse for Archaeological Site Stabilization is organized as a central location at which to seek information as well as to foster interactions among governmental agencies, professionals, and the private sector. It is one solution to the concern for improving technology transfer in historic preservation. The address and telephone number of the Clearinghouse are given at the end of this technical brief.
