A Little Bird Told Me: The Prehistory and History of the Pajarito Plateau
May is National Heritage Preservation Month and Jennifer Payne, Laboratory archaeologist, will talk about how Los Alamos National Laboratory works to identify, evaluate, and protect an unusually high number of archaeological sites on its land.
The Laboratory has an active cultural resources management plan and strategy, which allows projects to avoid impacts to archaeological sites and historic buildings. Between 2002 to 2007 archaeologists working at the Laboratory conducted an intensive excavation project, studying more than 40 sites. This presentation provides an overview of how archaeologists and historians make cultural resources management decisions at the Laboratory.
