The course combines classroom presentations along with a field exercise. Participants can expect to learn to recognize profiles of looters, the signs of looting, the importance of databases that register vandalism, understanding looted site chronology, and how to conduct a field damage assessment.

Moral and ethical considerations will also be discussed. Participants will also learn the major provisions and applications of the Archaeological Resources Protection Act and other applicable antiquities laws. This course will count toward the New Mexico Historic Preservation Division’s required continuing education credits for training.
