Desert Archaeology delivers results that honor the investment of public funds in archaeology. We are qualified to work in all jurisdictions in Arizona and adjacent states. We are familiar with the compliance requirements of local, state, and federal agencies and offer services that meet any project need.
Desert Archaeology works for and with Native American groups on government-sponsored projects on tribal lands. We maximize benefits to Native communities by planning projects in consultation with tribal cultural resource offices and community members, working with tribal employment services, and prioritizing the use of tribal businesses.
Desert Archaeology has developed compliance procedures specifically tailored to the needs of utility companies. We have streamlined the permitting and reporting processes for on-call contracts and developed and applied efficient methods for investigating cultural resources in the narrow, linear rights-of-way utility work requires. We coordinate closely with construction crews to minimize construction delays.
Desert Archaeology’s specialist staff members are often contracted to provide support services to other cultural resources firms. They offer expertise gained over decades of working with archaeological materials such as ceramics, flaked stone, ground stone, animal bone, shell, and archaeobotanical samples.
As a full-service cultural resources management company, Desert Archaeology is available to team with architectural, engineering, and environmental companies on contracts requiring CRM work. We also provide fieldwork support, cartographic services, collections management, and analytic services, customizing our offerings to complement your capabilities.
Other Private Sector Clients
Desert Archaeology works with private sector clients that are subject to a variety of regulations in both urban and rural contexts. We can guide you through the regulatory process, provide advice about time- and budget-sensitive options, and provide high-quality work that meets agency standards and allows you to stay focused on your own project goals.
