dc.description.abstractIn this paper, I shall examine the interrelationships of the objectives of our National Wilderness Preservation System on the one hand, and the goals of archeological conservation on the other. Archeological resources are, of course, limited and nonrenewable. They must be conserved and 1nanaged for maximum longevity if the field. of archeology is to continue to evolve so that research can provide an increasingly successful understanding of past cultures, and if the public is to receive the benefits of this research through books, films, museum exhibits, and the interpretation of the sites themselves. (More detailed discussion of archeological conservation is found, for example, in Lipe 1974 and Thompson 1974.) The principal question addressed here, then, is what are the prospects and problems for archeological resource conservation posed by the inclusion of these resources in Wildernesses.en_US
