Vanishing River Volume 4: Chapter 17: The Lower Verde Archaeological Project, Big Projects, and Cultural Resource Management

Summary

Chapter 17 highlights the full scope of the LVAP as a big project and places it in the context of other big archaeological projects. Altschul begins with historical sketches over other large archaeological projects, ranging from WPA efforts to the River Basin Surveys to large NSF-funded research. He then provides a history of the LVAP to illustrate how a large CRM-based project is conducted. He concludes with a discussion of four components that he defines as critical to the ultimate success of big projects: vision, planning, information management, and commitment.
