Heritage Protection and Emergency Management (HPEM)

Cogstone’s Heritage Protection and Emergency Management (HPEM) team provides all aspects of Heritage protection. With its team of Forensic Archaeologists and Criminal Investigators, HPEM has over 100 years of experience in protecting cultural resources. We can assist in the detection and investigation of archaeological violations and archaeological violation case report preparation. We can provide full archaeological damage assessment services for both terrestrial and submerged resources, including on-site damage assessment, Archaeological Resources Protection Act based value and cost determination, and archaeological damage assessment report preparation. Our investigation and damage assessment services are available for both criminal and civil cases.
