National Park Service: Archaeology
The Archeology Program provides national leadership, coordination, and technical guidance to assist parks, regions, and partners with the preservation and protection of archeological resources. From the cliff dwellings of the Southwest to urban rowhouse blocks, archeology represents a continuum of American heritage–its places, peoples, artifacts, and traditions. Over 80,000 archeological sites have been identified on National Park Service lands. Approximately 38 million artifacts are curated at NPS collections facilities, in addition to maps, reports, and other documentation.
