We often hear about people running across interesting archaeological finds on their property during renovations, construction projects, or even just gardening. Often such finds go undocumented. We’d love to hear about them!
Archaeological regulations in Louisiana apply only to state and federal lands (or to projects receiving federal funding), so sharing this information creates no obligations for you or your property in any way. Any archaeological materials found on private property, with the exception of human remains, belong to the property owner. We are interested only in gathering information in order to plan for the future of archaeological research in the city and to better document the rich history of New Orleans.
