Historical Archaeology Section

The primary mission of the Historical Archaeology Section is the identification, evaluation, and documentation of historic period archaeological resources from sites distributed throughout Illinois. In this capacity, the staff participates at all levels — from initial historical research through project planning and implementation, testing and evaluation, and ultimately, the Phase III investigation of significant sites.
