Archaeology Laws and Regulations

Over the course of the last 30-plus years many laws have been passed at the federal and state levels protecting historical and archaeological resources. We have collected several of them here to provide a background on the Archaeological Research Center's statutory role in state government and its efforts to comply with the provisions of the U.S. Native American Grave Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA).
