Archaeological Resources Protection Act of 1979

I link to a lot of stuff in the sidebar on the blog. I've come to realize that it's part of what makes blogging "journalish" work, as most of the additions are perhaps more frequently a catalog of personal resources than content consciously offered to readers. But I thought these were neat so I'd point out that I added them. Hike Arizona posts a reminder to read the Archaeological Resources Protection Act of 1979 and a guide to Ruins Etiquette (well-composed by a fellow calling himself Rob del Desierto) on listings for hikes that encounter sites of archeological significance. Lots of great stuff at Hike AZ. Check it out if you're not already familiar.

The 'Ruins Etiquette' piece was a fascinating read.

Oblivious East Coasters (like me!) are more accustomed to sites that treasure hunters and historians picked over long ago. We might kick away a potsherd, oblivious to the fact that it had lain there (in that exact spot!) for hundreds of years.
