Can You Hear Me Now? Establishing an Archaeological Connection in the World of Telecommunication

Author(s): Cori Rich

Year: 2018

Summary

Driven by the desire to learn, explore, and grow in the field of archaeology, those who chase this life are often left asking themselves: to CRM or not to CRM? Cultural Resource Management, specifically Phase I survey, is not what many would consider "exciting" or even "sexy".  All that in mind, I have taken on the task of building and managing a multi-state CRM program built on the foundation of telecommunications projects and Phase I surveys.  Telecom has created a unique environment that allows archaeologists to submerge themselves into a network of scientists, businessmen, environmentalists, and engineers.  This environment allows for archaeology to become relevant and by making archaeology relevant, my team and I can work to bridge the gap between archaeologists and the general public.
