Abstract

Cultural Resource Specialists function as interpreters of past and present human behavior through the analysis of cultural/natural resources vital to human ecological sustainability. When developing short and long-term preservation strategies for cultural resources, it is more current and innovative for Cultural Resource Specialists to think of past human populations as occupiers of broad ranges of landscapes and not limit our interpretive spheres of preservation and conservation to site-specific locales only. Cutting edge Cultural Resource Specialists are expanding their knowledge through integrated research, public interaction, and state-of-the-art preservation techniques. The current paper and presentation are a contribution to this expansion.
