Land & Sea Cultural Resource Management is comprised of group of qualified professionals dedicated to filling in the gaps in the human record, preserving history, and answering questions that have yet to be asked. We've worked in states from coast to coast, in the Caribbean, and overseas. We love what we do and we're really good at it.
We meet US Secretary of the Interior's qualifications for Archaeology and Historic Preservation (36 CFR Part 61) in the following disciplines:
Every single day, we work to help tell the story of all people - Americans, first Americans, Native Americans, colonists, immigrants, unintended immigrants, explorers, and even your ancestors. We do it because it's the right thing to do. We do it because real history is not written in books, it is directly under your feet.
We're working to discover how the first humans arrived in the Americas; who inhabited great coastal cities that now reside at the bottom of our oceans. Our research has uncovered long-forgotten forts that were integral to the settlement of the original English colonies to Virginia; we have collected and processed more than 11,000 artifacts from a single early 20th century commerce site; we've found 18th century pipe stems from Thomas Jefferson's favorite hot springs; and many more.
Unlike most CRM firms we also restore that history, and bring it back to life.
We've restored Tiffany stained glass windows; entire railroad stations; academic buildings, and have even worked on a World Heritage Site. We've consulted on new construction, too, and offer full design, construction administration, code compliance, OSHA, and life safety regulatory services. And when we're done discovering, uncovering, exploring, reviving, and restoring history, we have the capabilities to tell the story once more. In 2005 we completed a short subject documentary about one of our favorite projects, for our client. We've even become involved in computer technology, marketing, event planning, and social media at the request of our clients.
We go beyond shovel tests and boilerplate histories and live the history we uncover for our clients, and this is why we find such great reward in our work.
We don't just tell your story, as our clients. We tell our collective story. The human story.
