State Historic Preservation Office to Discuss the Importance of Documenting Post-European Contact

OKLAHOMA CITY — The State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) will host a free webinar on Tuesday, December 6, at 10 a.m. to discuss documenting post-European contact by examining various archaeological sites in Oklahoma.

Presenters will review available resources for researching project areas and sites, both prior to an actual survey and after identifying post-contact resources in the field. Experts will discuss best practices for completing a site form for a post-contact archaeological site or site component and discuss National Register eligibility considerations when assessing these resources. The webinar will also focus on the difference between site significance and site integrity.

Registration is required.

For more information contact Lynda Ozan, deputy state historic preservation officer, at 405-522-4484 or lynda.ozan@history.ok.gov.
