2.4.11 Historical site assessment report

A narrative report is generally a useful product for an historical site assessment. Use this report to summarize what is known about the site, what is assumed or inferred, activities conducted during the historical site assessment, and all researched information. Cite a supporting reference for each factual statement given in the report. Attach copies of references (i.e., those not generally available to the public) to the report. The narrative portion of the report should be written in the plain national language and avoid the use of technical terminology as much as possible.
