The AHPP does not maintain such a list, but professional archaeologists may be located by contacting the Register of Professional Archeologists at (410) 931-8100 or at www.rpanet.org.

AHPP is allotted 30 days for the review of undertakings as per the federal regulations (36 CFR Part 800). The review of smaller projects usually takes about two weeks.

You will need to submit the following items:

1. A 7.5 minute (1:24,000 scale) U.S. Geological Survey topographic map, which clearly delineates the project area.

2. A project description that details all aspects of the proposed project.

3. Include the location, age, and photographs of all structures (if any) that will be renovated, removed, demolished, or abandoned as a result of the project.

4. Include photographs of all structures 50 years or older on the property directly adjacent to the project area.

5. Email this information in pdf format to [email protected] or mail hard copies to Arkansas Historic Preservation Program, 106 Review, 1100 North Street, Little Rock, AR 72201.

U.S. Geological Survey topographic maps may be obtained from the Arkansas Geological Commission in Little Rock. Their telephone number is (501) 296-1877, and maps may be obtained from online sources, as well.
