(Cite as: 22 V.S.A. § 763)
  • § 763. Designation of archaeological sites

    The State Archaeologist, with the approval of the State Historic Preservation Officer, may publicly designate an archaeological site of significance to the scientific study or public representation of the State's historical, prehistorical, or aboriginal past as a "State archaeological landmark." All State agencies administering State-owned lands containing State archaeological landmarks shall cooperate to ensure the protection of these landmarks. State archaeological landmarks located on privately owned land shall not be designated without the written consent of the owner. Upon designation of an archaeological site the private owner or affected State agency shall be given written notice of the designation by the State Archaeologist. Once so designated, no person may conduct field activities without first securing a permit from the State Historic Preservation Officer and complying with the provisions of section 762 of this title. (Added 1975, No. 109, § 4; amended 1995, No. 46, § 46.)
