JW Fewkes, James "Al" Lancaster, and Beyond: A Century of Preservation Archeology at Mesa Verde National Park.
Site preservation has been an essential function at Mesa Verde National Park for a full century as well as a major prerogative of the National Park Service since its very inception. Early archaeological investigations at the park and attendant preservation efforts were instrumental in the definition of Ancestral Pueblo culture history by players who themselves were instrumental in the development of the science of North American archaeology. This presentation chronicles some of the remarkable accomplishments of these efforts, the evolution of preservation theory and practice, and contributions of the key players.
