The New York State Museum Cultural Resource Survey Program (CRSP) Series is a peer-reviewed, open-access series published on an occasional basis by The University of the State of New York/The State Education Department. The series publishes both individual monographs and edited volumes generated by the program on important cultural resource management issues in the state.
The New York State Museum’s Cultural Resource Survey Program has provided statewide cultural resource management services to other New York state and federal agencies since 1958. A major goal of CRSP is the dissemination of the knowledge it generates. Volumes in the CRSP series are meant to highlight exemplary reports generated by the program and make information about New York’s archaeological and architectural heritage readily accessible to the public. By highlighting little known and understood aspects of human life in New York, the wide distribution of these monographs will ensure that the work done by the CRSP, and its sponsoring agencies, will benefit the People of the State of New York.
