Summary

The Four Corner states of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah contain a wealth of archaeological resources due to the nature of the prehistoric peoples who occupied the area and the dry climate and soil that have preserved the archaeological sites and artifacts. Concerned about federal agencies' ability to protect and ensure the preservation of archaeological resources, the Subcommittee on Public Lands, National Parks, and Forests, Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, asked GAO to determine (1) to what extent the resources are being looted, (2) what the federal agencies are doing to protect the resources, and (3) what the agencies are doing to ensure that the artifacts being removed are properly preserved.
