Original publisher: [Washington, D.C.] : U.S. Dept. of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management, [2003] LC Number: E77.9 .A64 2003 OCLC Number: (OCoLC)53883360 Subject: United States — Antiquities — Collection and preservation. Excerpt: ... and protection. The Secretary's report, " Fossils on Federal and Indian Lands " ( May 2000 ), recommended that renewed Congressional attention could significantly advance Federal policy on fossils, and that Congress should consider the merits of a framework for fossils analogous to the Archaeological Resources Protection Act, including the need for stiffer penalties for those who damage and steal certain fossils. In March 2001, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation issued the report, " Caring for the Past, Managing for the Future: Federal Stewardship and America's Historic Legacy, " which points to the wealth of historic resources managed by the Federal Government, describes both the successes and failures in their preservation, and recommends specific measures to correct many of the problems. Among other things, the report recommends establishing legislation to encourage, rather than impede, public - private partnerships through more widespread creation and use of " friends of " organizations, which work with Federal managers in support of private fundraising and other activities, and providing better funding and staff support for Federal historic preservation activities. Americans share in this unique cultural legacy preserved on our public land. We are enriched by its collective ownership and impoverished in many ways by its loss. The recommendations in the reports mentioned above, as well as the recommendations that emanate from public discussion, are important to the preservation of the cultural and paleontological resources on BLM public lands, and it is critical that we take action now. To the extent that our cultural and natural heritage is an expression of our identity as a Nation and as a people, the loss...

Publisher Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1897 edition. Excerpt: ... been passed over, remained an unsolved problem to the last. At A, directly on an upper step of the ledge, at a depth of $4 feet, lay a block weighing about 150 pounds (see Fig. 17), deeply marked with a line of peckings on its side, on a plane that would have split it with the grain. There were four smaller pieces, at depths of one, five, and three feet, weighing about seventy pounds apiece, perceptibly nicked near their fractured sides, as if the marks had been made in splitting them. But a much larger block, weighing several tons, had been indented at several points on its side in a different manner. Besides several deep scratches, there was what might have been called a heavy scrape, as if in managing the block with heavy wooden levers (like those found at Macungie), a hard stone had been ground upon at the point of leverage or under the mass. That these large blocks had been moved from their original positions, either by undermining, when they would have fallen downward, or by trees used as levers, was again proved by a still heavier mass (see Fig. 18), lying at a depth of seven feet on the level ledge at A, for a number of chips lay exactly under it. As remarked before, fire had evidently not been used, either to break these formidable masses or to cut into the solid ledge below them. Flakes. It was these that first caught the eye at the quarries. Save in shaft A, close to the ledge, where they were sometimes interbedded with layers of clay, they formed, as before mentioned, a dense mass almost free of soil. (See Fig. 16.) The average flake weighed three to six ounces; one of the largest, eight pounds. In shaft A there were two bands of finer chips about one-eighth of an inch in diameter, yet possessing the same character and...
