Protect the Past
Faculty and students of CHaSS’s anthropology program are dedicated to preserving the history of Utah by conserving the archaeological records left by the peoples that came before us. Unfortunately, according to studies conducted by Utah Division of State History, nearly one-third of all archeological sites have been damaged during the modern day.
As part of a statewide initiative to bring awareness to the regular vandalism of Utah’s archaeological sites, Governor Spencer Cox has announced the "Protect the Past" pledge. The program encourages pledgers to learn about proper etiquette before visiting these important archaeological sites to help prevent defacement and encourage preservation for future generations. Our faculty and students live this pledge every day, and we encourage you to do the same and help us keep Utah’s history accessible for years to come.
