Cultural Resources

Archaeological sites, historic buildings and structures, cultural landscapes, and historic documents are the fabric of our national heritage. Collectively known as cultural resources, they are a tangible link with the past. The National Park Service is committed to protecting and managing these irreplaceable resources in a spirit of stewardship for future generations to understand and enjoy. Partnerships in cultural resource programs and research allow us to develop, better coordinate, and extend the reach of education, training, and public awareness activities relating to the history of the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve.

Conducting Research in the Preserve

All types of archeological fieldwork on parklands require NPS authorization in the form of a Permit for Archeological Investigations. Such activities include excavation, shovel testing, coring, pedestrian survey (even if not involving artifact removal), underwater archeology, rock art documentation, or other types of reconnaissance.
