Utah Archaeology Week

excavation.jpgMay 7-14 is Utah Archaeology Week, a week celebrating Utah's prehistoric peoples and cultures. Free events will be held throughout the state.

Laws governing archaeological sites in Utah can be found at Title 9, Chapter 8, Section 301 et seq. of the Utah Code. These laws created the Antiquities Section which helps protect sites and artifacts, governs excavation permits, and details the penalties for violating these laws.

If you're interested in learning more about Utah's archaeological history and sites, check out archaeology publications available through the Utah State History website.
