NEW YORK ARCHAEOLOGICAL COUNCIL WILL DISCUSS THE EFFECT OF THE RECESSION ON ARCHAEOLOGY IN NEW YORK STATE
During the program portion of its April 27, 2012 meeting, the New York Archaeological Council (NYAC) will present a series of short presentation and panel discussion on the effects of the recession on archaeology in New York State.

The program will cover a wide range of subjects important to the functioning of archaeology in New York State, including the recession’s effects on private sector and public sector Cultural Resource Management (CRM), academic programs and the training of archaeologists, challenges to museums and the practice of archaeology, and archaeological considerations within the current dynamics of environmental regulatory review.
