Richard Grubb on Careers in Archaeology, History and Historic Architecture
Richard Grubb & Associates is the largest archaeological and historical consulting firm in New Jersey. Employing many archaeologists, historians, and architectural historians, the firm conducts compliance-related projects in New Jersey and adjoining states. Mr. Grubb will discuss employment opportunities for those with Bachelor’s or graduate degrees in archaeology, history, or architectural history/historic preservation. Part two of his presentation will focus on the law that enables firms like RGA to be successful. That law is the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, which requires heritage resources to be considered if a project receives federal funding, requires a federal permit, or takes place on federal land. The presentation will end with a brief discussion of the American Cultural Resources Association (ACRA), particularly focusing on the role of that association in protecting Section 106 and other preservation laws when they come under threat in Congress.
