Information Bulletin Number 23 (revised June 2011)
Recording Archaeological Study Areas
Bulletin 23, Recording Archaeological Study Areas, details a combined effort of the professional archaeological consulting community and the Archaeology Branch to record locations where archaeologists have conducted permitted field studies to locate and record archaeological sites protected under the Heritage Conservation Act.
Study area boundaries are loaded into the provincial database and identified by permit number in a Study Areas layer. The corresponding permit report can be accessed through the Provincial Archaeological Report Library. The Study Areas layer is currently available to Archaeological Data Import Facility (ADIF) users and will be available to Remote Access to Archaeological Data (RAAD) users in the future. It is not available to the general public.
The Study Areas layer contains study areas for permits issued since July 2009. At this time it does not contain earlier studies. Caution should therefore be taken when using the Study Areas layer to identify previous work as studies predating July 2009 will not be displayed.
