Archaeological assessments may be required for some subdivisions and raw land development, and on sites containing historical resources depending on the jurisdiction of the place of the work. Archaeological assessments are performed by consulting archaeologists. They include information for the authorities having jurisdiction to determine if lands may be developed, and what precautions may need to be taken during site preparation and construction. This checklist is meant to help the architect understand the scope of work to undertake an archaeological survey, and the deliverable that an archaeologist typically prepares. It is meant to augment and not replace any regulatory requirements that may be in place in any jurisdiction.
