The talk begins by giving a brief background of what archaeology is and what types of archaeological sites could be encountered in a particular area. The legislation that protects archaeological sites is also discussed.
Samples of different types of archaeological materials are shown as examples (fire-cracked rock, shell midden, faunal material, lithic debitage) and a series of photographs is shown to illustrate the site types that might be expected.
What to do and what not to do if a site is encountered is discussed and any questions the participants might have are addressed.
Awareness training for employees can fulfill a significant portion of due diligence for major developers.
