Archaeologist assessing buildup's impacts

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Since 1966, the National Historic Preservation Act has required all federally-funded projects to review the potential impact on historic properties.  That's why Maryland-based archaeologist Dr. Thomas King is on-island, leading workshops on historic preservation law, preparing local specialists for the flurry of construction related to the military buildup

He said his work focuses on "places of importance, cultural importance to the people of Guam, places of historical and archeological importance. I hope that they can come away with efficient and effective ways to deal with those legal requirements and do right by the people of Guam."

King, with the Guam Museum Foundation, will also host a lecture this Saturday focusing on his own archaeological expeditions in Kiribati, searching for the aircraft remains of famed aviator Amelia Earhart.  That will take place at the Latte of Freedom Cultural Center at the Governor's Complex at Adelup at 2:30 Saturday afternoon.

It's $20 for adults, $10 for students.
