A, B, C, easy as 1, 2, 3: Evaluating Archaeological and Tribal Resources Under the “Other” National Register Criteria

January 28, 2021 | 2:00 - 3:30 PM (EST) | Register Now

Although all resources should be evaluated under all four criteria of the National Register of Historic Places (NHRP), archaeologists generally focus on information values (Criterion d). As our society changes and awareness increases of broader cultural values, CRM practitioners are increasingly asked to consider whether cultural resources might possess other values and thus be eligible for listing in the NRHP under criteria a, b, and/or c - which can be very challenging in a regulatory context.

Join us on Thursday, January 28 at 2:00 pm EST for A, B, C, easy as 1, 2, 3: Evaluating Archaeological and Tribal Resources Under the “Other” National Register Criteria. This webinar will focus on how to document what makes a place important to descendant communities or how a place might fit into the identity a group shares about a location.

Attendees will hear about guidelines and ideas on how to capture the information, and put it in writing so an agency reviewer can understand the case for significance. Using case studies and examples, the presenters will explain ways to document what may seem like nebulous values to an outsider as well as “dos” and “don’ts” that will help with managing properties in a regulatory setting.

Participants are encouraged to have a working knowledge of NHPA and NRHP vocabulary as this is not an introductory workshop and the content and presentation will assume familiarity. As a reminder, ACRA members benefit from a firm-wide registration fee - once one person from a member firm registers, others can register for free.
