This letter from an anthropologist describes a situation he was in while conducting a cultural resource inventory of a proposed geophysical exploration project on public land. While doing the inventory, the anthropologist had to cross some private land and saw a historic site with both historic and prehistoric components. The anthropologist contacted the private land owner in the hope that he would be able to provide some information about the historic site on his property. The land owner, however, was extremely uncooperative and was concerned that the historic site might pose a threat to future development and exploration of the natural resources on his land.
From the Handbook on Ethical Issues in Anthropology, edited by Joan Cassell and Sue-Ellen Jacobs. A special publication of the American Anthropological Association, number 23.
