Protecting Heritage - Archaeology and History
Dykeman Roebuck Archaeology is a scientific organization studying, preserving and teaching about archaeological, historic, and traditional Native American landscapes and sites located in the Four Corners region.
We serve critical roles in your project - before, during and after completion - assisting you in the compliance process from obtaining permissions to identify cultural properties, to the identification of cultural resources within the project area, writing up findings, making recommendations to the completion of the consultation process and the issuance of project approval and clearance.
We facilitate compliance with federal, state, and municipal law regarding the protection of cultural resources,
We record cultural resource sites and the identify sites important to Native Americans' traditions prior to proposed project construction.
We analyze the discovered resources, and publish our results and make recommendations for the classification, mitigation and treatment of cultural and heritage resources.
Important cultural sites are avoided if possible through modification of project design. We work with your project managers, surveyors and engineers to help find solutions that minimize impact to cultural resources while ensuring the timely completion of your project.
If sites must be impacted, we write mitigation plans, work with regulatory authorities to gain approval for those plans and conduct archaeological excavations that recover significant scientific information.
Throughout the process, from project design to construction, Dykeman Roebuck Archaeology develops collaborative partnerships with regulatory agencies and stakeholders, including the State Historic Preservation Officer, federal land management agencies, Indian tribes, and the State Land Office. We seek to streamline the required consultation process, while insuring that the all party's mandated historic preservation responsibilities are met.
We make sure that the results are published in a way that makes a contribution to scientific knowledge, the profession of archaeology and that the public is informed about their cultural heritage.
