I realize this a busy time for contractors with the end of the field season approaching, but the Oversight Board of the Statewide Historical and Archaeological Survey has released another call for proposals, this one for an archaeological survey of Dakota County. It was published in this week’s issue of the State Register, the Monday 24 October 2016 issue. It is on page 496 (or page 12 of the current issue).
“The Minnesota Historical Society (Society) and the Oversight Board of the Statewide Historical and Archaeological Survey (Board) seek a qualified consultant to conduct an archaeological survey of Dakota County. The purposes of the project are to summarize what is known about the early human occupation of the county, update the State Archaeologist’s site file with regard to the status of known archaeological sites, and find through field survey unrecorded prehistoric and early historic sites. The cost of the survey should not exceed $95,000.”
