A Status Report to the Archeological Community


At virtually every stage in the development of American archeology, some government agency has acted as the discipline's interface with the Federal establishment. The nature of this interface has reflected and affected the practice of archeology and the construction of archeological law. The Interagency Archeological Services Division (IAS), National Park Service is the latest of these interfaces. As a replacement of the Interagency Archeological Investigations and Salvage Program whose scope essentially had been limited to implementation of the Reservoir Salvage Act of 1960, the IAS program is a broader and more complex managerial system reflecting the complexities of contemporary environmental and historic preservation law and policy and the increasing sophistication and professionalization of archeology.
