About the Archaeology Department

Urban Archaeology is the systematic recovery and examination of material evidence from the city’s past.  Remnants of human activity -- structures, artifacts, and other remains -- which are often buried under subsequent layers of development, illuminate and augment the information already available through historical documents.  For more information follow the link below to About Urban Archaeology.

The Archaeology Department consists of three professional archaeologists who review subsurface work subject to environmental review regulations and, for some sites, the Landmarks Law.  If important archaeological resources are threatened, the department determines and oversees appropriate mitigation.  For a fuller explanation of the review process, please see the Guidelines for Archaeological Work in New York City
