Archaeological Services

Archaeological Excavation in Progress

ECORP's cultural resources staff provides all services required for the identification, evaluation, and treatment of archaeological resources as needed for compliance with federal, state, and local regulations. ECORP archaeologists carry out field surveys to identify prehistoric sites including village sites, temporary camps, roasting pits/hearths, lithic (stone) tools and flakes, milling features and groundstone artifacts, petroglyphs/rock art, geoglyphs, fish traps, and burials/cremations. ECORP archaeologists also identify historic archaeological sites including homesteads; agricultural or ranching features; mining-related features; water storage and conveyance features such as culverts, reservoirs, and dams; and refuse concentrations. ECORP archaeologists excavate archaeological sites in order to evaluate their significance and to recover data as mitigation of impacts.
