Class III Archaeological Survey: Pedestrian Reconnaissance 🛠

An archaeological method within Class III Reconnaissance Survey requirements, Pedestrian Survey, is conducted over the entirety of the project area (whether they be previously surveyed, or proposed) in order to determine the locations of above-ground resources (e.g., artifacts, cemeteries, rockshelters, and foundation remnants) and to determine the nature of physical and environmental aspects of the project area. .

Pedestrian survey transects are typically measured by 20

m intervals to ensure proper ground surveillance. As survey is conducted, photographs of the survey area should be taken, and any above ground resources should be mapped. 🛠
