Window of Opportunity: Administering Hurricane Sandy Archaeology in Rhode Island
Author(s): Timothy Ives
Supported by the U.S. National Park Service’s Historic Preservation Fund Program, the Rhode Island Historical Preservation and Heritage Commission administered surveys of coastal archaeological sites damaged by Hurricane Sandy in Rhode Island. This paper considers, from a management perspective, some of the unique constraints and challenges of this work, including incomplete property access, bureaucratic delays, and a Tribal collaboration that fell short. The insights provided by this retrospective may prove useful to anyone faced with responding to catastrophic erosion of archaeological sensitive coastlines in the future, which we coastal archaeologists collectively anticipate.
