Data Recovery Studies
Data recovery is a form of mitigation that archaeologically documents and recovers detailed information from an archaeological site or historic property that has been determined to be significant under the State or National Register criteria.  Data recovery studies (and reports) are conducted in compliance with HAR 13-278.  Data recovery work is guided by a data recovery plan (see HAR 13-278) that contains research questions relevant to the site and its research potential.  Work performed during data recovery work can include detailed mapping, in depth descriptive data, and excavations specifically designed to recover information relevant to research questions.  Laboratory analysis on the recovered cultural materials is also a frequent component of data recovery studies.

Several recent PCSI projects have included data recovery studies, including:
