Step 2. Document the importance of the event or pattern in national, state, or local history. Step 3. Demonstrate the strength of the association between the event or pattern and the archaeological remains of the historical site. Step 4. Assess the integrity of the archaeological remains. Do they retain enough integrity of location, setting, and association to convey or illustrate or interpret the property? Often, archaeological properties that are nominated under criteria A, B, or C in addition to D convey their significance through visible remains.

For example, in a district composed of numerous archaeological sites and some standing structures in a townsite with a period of significance from 1835 to 1860, prehistoric sites that fall within the boundary would be noncontributing to that district. They may well be eligible individually, but they are noncontributing to the historic significance of that property as it has been defined. Eligibility Step 2: Determine Which Historic Context(s) the Property Represents and How Property Types Relate to the Archaeological Resources The term “historic context” can be confusing because it has two related meanings.

The relationship among place, National Register concepts, and archaeological resources can be complicated. Consider, for example, historic mining districts as the key dimension of place of a historic context. After the discovery of an ore body, miners organized themselves into districts, legal entities recognized by custom and statute, to regulate mining activities and resolve disputes. They often defined the district’s boundaries arbitrarily rather than precisely encompassing the ore body. A mining district meets the requirements of a historic district.
