Publications

The production of materials designed for public educational purposes is often an element of mitigation required for projects that impact historically significant archaeological or architectural properties. Traditionally, the distribution of these publications has been limited to designated state and local repositories and parties known to have an interest in the particular property. As part of our commitment to promoting the value of our cultural heritage through public education, PAL has posted some of its available publications on-line. They may be viewed, downloaded, or printed by following the links included in the descriptions of the materials below. We expect to be adding more in the near future, and hope to make online publication a standard for all the subsequent public educational materials we produce. If you are an educator and have questions about ways to incorporate any of these materials into your curriculum, please feel free to contact PAL’s education coordinator Alan Leveillee.
