Lipe, which he prepared in December 1979 at the request of the US Attorney, which was prosecuting the first court case brought under the Archaeological Resources Protection Act passed in October 1979.

Provided here are Lipe's trial notes, assembled in 1979, and an introduction appended in July 2015.
