A lot of notable legislation came out of the 1960s. You can tell by the number of 50th anniversary celebrations going on lately.
Those include 50 candles for the National Historic Preservation Act, which created the National Register of Historic Places and a framework for protecting historical and archaeological sites.
Which is music to the ears of our resident archaeologists, Mark Tveskov and Chelsea Rose.
In our latest edition of "Underground History," Chelsea and Mark join Lynn Sebastian of the SRI Foundation to talk about the lasting impact of the NHPA.
