Assessing Associational Integrity of Prehistoric Criterion D Sites Using National Register Bulletin 15,How to Apply the National Register Criteria for Evaluation
Saturday, February 23rd 1:15-3 PM
This workshop covers the basics of assessing the associational integrity of prehistoric
Criterion D sites using National Register Bulletin 15. Association is one of the Seven
Aspects of Integrity along with location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, and
feeling. Integrity is the ability of a property to convey its significance. For a site to be
eligible under Criterion D, it must possess associational integrity, as well as at least one
of the other six pillars of integrity. Both surface and subsurface sites are discussed with
an emphasis on subsurface sites. Important characteristics of associational integrity
presented in Bulletin 15 will be considered, including temporal diagnostic evidence,
stratigraphic separation, decomposition, disturbance (e.g. turbation), and land alteration
(e.g. erosion). These characteristics of associational integrity are discussed within a
framework that supports the ability of site data to address relevant research questions
given the presence and absence of site formation and site destruction processes.
