Document Description
Conduct archaeological testing of a proposed location for an Artifact Storage building at Bodie State Historic Park to determine the presence and extent of any subsurface deposits remaining on the proposed site and the historic integrity of any finds. The testing location is in the northwest corner of the Maintenance and Storage Compound within a previously excavated flat. A DPR qualified archaeologist will dig to eight shovel test pits at various locations within the previously excavated flat. The depth of the test units will be determined by the deposition of artifacts. This project assists in the protection, preservation, and interpretation of the parks' cultural resources and is a prerequisite for any future construction in this area.
