Maritime Archaeology at Dry Tortugas National Park

Research Domains, Framework, and Perpectives
  • Larry E. Murphy

Abstract

The objective of the Dry Tortugas Survey was to produce a model for the National Park Service (NPS) submerged cultural resource survey and refine current techniques and methodologies to adapt them to the NPS mission requiring systematic survey, inventory, registration, evaluation and ultimately, interpretation of the maritime historical sites within its boundaries. A special congressional appropriation became available in 1992 to aid the NPS in surveying lands within its jurisdiction. This project was funded through this initiative, which is known as the Systemwide Archaeological Inventory Program (SAIP).
