Summary

The National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) introduced a fundamental change to Federal agency archeology, promoting systematic and coordinated investigations of archeological resources in anticipation of Federal undertakings and for management purposes. In response to challenges of complying with NHPA Section 106 and 110, the National Park Service implemented the Systemwide Archeological Inventory Program (SAIP) in 1992. Its purpose was support archeological projects designed to locate, evaluate and document archeological resources on National Park System lands, and to evaluate resources for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. This study examines how NHPA influenced NPS archeology through SAIP and to examine trends in projects funded during SAIP’s twenty-year lifespan.
