Slide presentation

SinC member Pamela Asbury-Smith will present a workshop at the May meeting. Pamela worked for UXB (Unexploded Bombs) on the island as a HAZWOPR certified QA archaeologist. She will describe the efforts made to clear the island of fifty years of accumulated ordnance, the environmental concerns associated with long-term bombing, quality assurance oversight of recording of archaeological sites that may have suffered damage, and restoration of native vegetation. The Project has since been completed, the island has been deemed clear, and returned to the Hawaiians for continued restoration and ceremonial use.
