Military Landscapes and Balancing Historic Preservation

Author(s): Regina M. Meyer

Year: 2018

Summary

When considering cultural landscapes, military installations are unique due to their development through continued use for defense-related purposes. As a result of this active use, military cultural landscapes continue to evolve, changing yet staying the same in terms of function. Many military installations such as Camp Clark and Camp Crowder in Missouri, contain a variety of cultural resources.  Maintaining the balance between the National Guard's military mission and heritage preservation can present a challenge. Archaeological testing, remote sensing, combined with various archival sources and recordation, is now used to study, evaluate,  preserve and support these vast military landscapes.
