Chris Webster is a cultural resource management archeologist. That means when the National Registry of Historic Places is thinking about adding a mining town, Spanish mission, or Native American burial site to its list, it calls in Chris.

He has worked in all phases of contract archaeology, from literature searches and Class 1 surveys to full scale excavations and lab work.

He also has to figure out what's worth preserving and what isn't. The choice usually isn't easy.
