Cultural Resources

Tierra’s team of cultural resources professionals has been providing archaeological services since 1993. Our archaeologists have experience identifying, evaluating, and mitigating archaeological, historical, and architectural resources within the context of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) and other preservation laws and regulations.

We take pride in our proven track record of successfully completing projects under the jurisdiction of multiple Federal, State, and local agencies. As a result of the quality of our work and the responsiveness of our staff, we have fostered excellent professional relationships with regulatory agencies and our clients.

Our team of expert archaeologists is capable of handling multiple, concurrent small and large scale projects and producing detailed professional reports. Our corporate headquarters has a fully equipped 1,300-square-foot laboratory with a separate wet laboratory for artifact processing and a dry laboratory for artifact analysis. All of our field directors are Organizational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)–certified Competent Persons, and archaeological staff regularly attend professional events and training seminars to stay up-to-date on current archaeological news, laws, regulations, and research topics.
