Current Research – Kristina Killgrove, PhD
This environmental bioarchaeology project will analyze an historically well-contextualized skeletal collection from a catastrophic mortality event using osteological and biochemical techniques in order to understand people’s complex relationship with the circum-Vesuvian landscape during a critical period of climate change.

National Historic Landmarks Program | National Park Service
National Historic Landmarks (NHLs) are nationally significant historic places designated by the Secretary of the Interior because they possess exceptional value or quality in illustrating or interpreting the heritage of the United States. Today, just over 2,500 historic places bear this national distinction. Working with citizens throughout the nation, the National Historic Landmarks Program draws upon the expertise of National Park Service staff who guide the nomination process for new Landmarks and provide assistance to existing Landmarks.

National Register of Historic Places Official Website--Part of the National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior
The National Register of Historic Places is the official list of the Nation's historic places worthy of preservation. Authorized by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places is part of a national program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect America's historic and archeological resources.

What We Do
• Review nominations submitted by states, tribes, and other federal agencies and list eligible properties in the National Register
• Offer guidance on evaluating, documenting, and listing different types of historic places through the National Register Bulletin series and other publications
• Help qualified historic properties receive preservation benefits and incentives

• National Register Fundamentals - covers everything from how to determine if your property is eligible, to how to contact your State Historic Preservation Officer to start a nomination, to the listing process, to the effects of listing
• Nomination Forms
• Publications- National Register Bulletins and other guidance on all aspects of the nomination process
• Federal Preservation Laws and Regulations(36CFR60 - specifically for the National Register of Historic Places)
Search the National Register!

The National Register of Historic Places is a treasure trove for professional historians, scholars, and anyone curious about American history. You can explore its riches three ways:

• Search a list of properties
• Read an ever-growing inventory of full nomination forms online - we are currently digitizing our files and adding them to our online database
Fast Facts
• The more than 90,000 properties listed in the National Register represent 1.4 million individual resources - buildings, sites, districts, structures, and objects
• Almost every county in the United States has at least one place listed in the National Register
• Listing in the National Register is the first step towards eligibility for National Park Service-administered federal preservation tax credits that have leveraged more than $45 billion in private investment and National Park Service grant programs like Save America's Treasures and Preserve America.
• 30 historic lighthouses have been transferred to new owners for preservation and public use
• 144 students have taken part in the Cultural Resources Diversity Internship Program

About Us :: The New York Landmarks Conservancy
At the front lines of advocacy, the rooftops of sacred spaces, and the stoops of brownstones, the Conservancy works in many directions on behalf of New York’s architectural heritage. The Conservancy’s programs demonstrate that hands-on help for building owners is the key to successful preservation. By providing technical advice, financial aid, and education, the Conservancy contributes to economic revitalization of the City’s neighborhoods and aesthetic rehabilitation of its much-loved older buildings.

Holocene fluctuations in human population demonstrate repeated links to food production and climate | PNAS
The relationship between human population, food production, and climate change is a pressing concern in need of high-resolution, long-term perspectives. Archaeological radiocarbon dates have increasingly been used to reconstruct past population dynamics, and Britain and Ireland provide both radiocarbon sampling densities and species-level sample identifications that are globally unrivalled. We use this evidence to demonstrate multiple instances of human population downturn over the Holocene that coincide with periodic episodes of reduced solar activity and climate reorganization as well as societal responses in terms of altered food-procurement strategies.

The Beaker phenomenon and the genomic transformation of northwest Europe | Nature
Bell Beaker refers to a distinctive pottery style found across western and central Europe during the end of the Neolithic. Previous studies have had conflicting results on the origin and mechanisms of spread of the Beaker culture. David Reich and colleagues report genome-wide data from 400 Neolithic, Copper Age and Bronze Age Europeans, from 136 different archaeological sites, and including 226 Beaker-associated individuals. These individuals were highly genetically heterogeneous, which supports a model in which cultural transmission and human migration both had important roles in the spread of the Beaker culture, with the relative balance of these two processes varying by region. Elsewhere in this issue, David Reich and colleagues analyse genome-wide genomic data from 225 individuals who lived in southeastern European and the surrounding regions between 12000 and 500 ʙᴄ. They analyse these data in combination with previous genomic datasets to update existing models of the early spread of farming into and across Europe.
