Advising hours will be posted on my faculty office
door each week, a week in advance. Please sign up and bring an
agenda. If you plan to discuss drafts, proposals, drawings, field
notes, photographs, or similar material, please leave a copy in
my faculty mailbox with a note asking me to preview your work

time to consider carefully your work before getting together.
"An examination of the primary and secondary
resources used in research for historic preservation, including

materials) and physical investigative procedures used in identifying
tool marks, materials, etc. Full reports, according to the Department
of the Interior Standards, will be prepared on the buildings."
