    Description

    Southern Nevada’s cultural resources (heritage resources) include archeological remains, sacred sites, historic sites, and cultural landscapes of significance to Native Americans and many other groups. Locating, maintaining, and protecting these special places are part of the mandate of Nevada’s Federal and state agencies. This chapter addresses Sub-goal 2.2 in the SNAP Science Research Strategy, which is to preserve these resources through responsible use of southern Nevada’s lands (table 1.3; Turner and others 2009). It explores non-destructive means of identifying, recording, and protecting cultural resources. Cultural resources at risk, risk factors, and needed measures to protect them are discussed, with a focus on non-destructive preservation and protection measures. Selected methods of non-destructive identification, recording, and analysis of sub-surface remains are also reviewed.
