Mauna Lani Historic Preservation Plan
Archaeological Data Recovery, Interpretive Excavation, Mapping and Historic Preservation Planning for Mauna Lani Resort, Island of Hawaii

PCSI provided archaeological services to a private resort developer on the Island of Hawaii in support of new development on a 400-acre parcel on the Kohala coast in Kona.

PCSI archaeologists conducted data recovery excavations in selected sites, and detailed mapping of a quarry complex where scoria lava was procured by Hawaiians.  A data recovery report was prepared documenting the findings.

PCSI also developed a Historic Preservation Plan (HPP) for sites recommended for preservation.  The HPP detailed how the cultural resources found at the site will be protected and preserved.   Throughout the project, PCSI was responsible for providing all required coordination and communication support with the State Historic Preservation Division (SHPD).
