Map Description:
This map was created using the total number of archeological sites per county inventoried by State Historical Preservation Officers (SHPO) and Information Centers, divided by the county area. This map is part of a larger project completed by the Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies at the Univeristy of Arkansas entitled "Effects of Agriculture on Cultural Resources". Funded by the Natural Resources Conservation Service, this project aimed at evaluating, for the continental United States, the effects of agriculture on cultural resources and at assessing the role USDA soil conservation practices have on them. The results were reviewed by an interdiciplinary team and used to make recommendations for the formulation of Congressional Farm Bill 1995. A final report and additional maps can be found at the link provided below.
