The Assignment

Assignment 2: Archaeological Resource Protection Act (ARPA) Case 

Bring an example of an ARPA case to class for discussion. Plan to turn in 1-2 pages single spaced that briefly answers these questions. You should have at least 2 sources on your case and I would expect several more.

1.       Summarize the details of the case (who, what, where, etc.)

2.       How exactly does ARPA apply?

3.       Has the case been settled yet and if so what was the outcome? List your sources.

4.       What are your thoughts on the case?
