The Office of Public Archaeology's staff of historic preservation professionals provides a wide range of cultural resource management (CRM) services to a variety of clients, including corporations, developers, government agencies and private citizens. We help clients meet legal requirements prior to and during development projects and assist in consultations with local, state and federal agencies and tribes.
In addition to its main building, the institute also manages a separate 6,000-square-foot curation facility that allows for storage and analysis of archaeological research collections and records. It is one of only two facilities in Mississippi that meets the requirements for curating federal collections. Its large storage area has special environmental controls and security systems.
