Cultural Resources Archaeology

The Archaeology Unit of the Cultural Resources Section of the Office of Environmental Services is responsible for the identification and consideration of impacts of federally funded undertakings on archaeological properties, sites, or districts that are listed on, or may be eligible for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places. The Archaeology Unit is charged with documented archaeological resources, as well as implementing locational (reconnaissance) surveys, archaeological resource assessment surveys, and archaeological data recovery (mitigation) plans. Since Archaeological properties, sites, and districts vary significantly in terms of their formation and expression, an interdisciplinary approach incorporating ecological, geological, geographical and historical data is applied working with the Office of Environmental Services to enhance project planning and implementation, to efficiently coordinate the consultant review process, and to engage potentially interested parties, while providing proper management for Ohio’s cultural resources on all of ODOT's transportation projects.
