MITIGATION OF IMPACTS

Mitigation of archaeological sites is often equated with excavation. Archaeological excavation is one of the most expensive ways to move dirt on the planet. It is obviously to be avoided where possible. Fortunately, mitigation does not mean excavation. Impacts to archaeological sites can be mitigated through avoidance, for example, or by filling over a site and building on top of the fill. Mitigation of effects is achieved and archaeological excavation is minimized. If a project can be modified to eliminate or minimize negative impacts to archaeological sites, archaeological impact mitigation can be fairly easily and directly achieved.

The problems in archaeological mitigation arise where there is no maneuvering room on the job site. If there is no room to move structures, impacts might be unavoidable.
