In the News, Publications, Awards and Recognition



Cultural resource management is a deliberate and delicate balance between public information and site protection. During excavation PAST generally maintains a relatively low profile, carefully selecting safe projects for public involvement.

Awards and Recognition

PAST has earned numerous awards for work in cultural resource management, including recognition by Connecticut Preservation Action, the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, the Connecticut Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, the Hartford Architecture Conservancy, and a National Historic Preservation award from the U.S. Department of the Interior. We have been a leader in archaeological preservation in Connecticut, beginning with large surveys that have provided the core of the state’s archaeological database. Six out of ten of Connecticut’s new State Archaeological Preserves are sites documented by PAST, and we have documented nearly all of the National Register-listed archaeological sites in the state.
