About us

Since 1980, Archaeological and Historical Services (AHS) has provided cultural resources management services for all aspects of project planning and development. AHS is a grant/contract research program at Eastern Washington University that specializes in aiding private, city, county, state, and federal clients in meeting local, state, and federal compliance requirements pertaining to the inventory, protection, and enhancement of archaeological and historical resources in the Northwestern United States. During AHS’s 38 year history, over 2,800 projects have been successfully completed.

In addition to project findings reports, our professional staff contribute to historic preservation and archaeological research through the publication of findings in research journals and presentations at regional and national conferences.

Latest from AHS:
