Abstract:

This set of guidelines is designed to identify means for evaluating archeological site preservation technical options and to set up a procedure for selecting the proper options to be employed in specific situations. In the absence of any prior guidelines, these guidelines are based on interviews with Federal archeologists with direct personal experience in specific site preservation situations. The guidelines so developed were tested at a prehistoric mound site on Huffine Island, Tenn., and those efforts are presented as a case study in site preservation.
