ANT 35000 Introduction to Cultural Resource Management

The field of Cultural Resource Management (CRM) employs the majority of archaeologists in the United States. Job prospects in this field are significantly higher than other areas of employment in anthropology. The CRM field also employs historians, architectural historians, folklorists, ethnographers, soil specialists, GIS technicians, writers, and graphic artists, among others. This course introduces students from many disciplines to this field. It will cover the advent of CRM, legal aspects of compliance work, interaction and ethical considerations with clients, basic archaeological survey and field techniques, project budgets, project management, project review, and CRM job prospects. While the focus of this course is archaeological, students from other disciplines will find many applications.
