The area now known as New York City has been a bustling city center for centuries. As a result of this very long history, our streets are full of amazing artifacts. When required archaeological consultants are called in to assess and mitigate any archaeological finds. Federal, State and City laws, regulations established in 1966 require that any projects utilizing public funds consider what effect if any, the proposed action will have on all aspects of historic and/or cultural resources. The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) oversees all archaeology in New York City whether the site is located within a historic district or not.

Alyssa Loorya of Chrysalis Archaeological Consultants will discuss the Federal, State and City laws and the practical phases of regulatory required work including assessment, survey, excavation and forensic services.
