The Archaeology Records staff maintains the statewide ledger for archaeological site numbers. The State of Utah uses the standard Smithsonian trinomial site number system which defines the state number (42=Utah), the county (e.g. KA=Kane), and a sequential number (e.g. 500). This numbering system is recognized by the vast majority of state and federal agencies and landowners. We do not assign blocks of numbers for sites yet-to-be discovered.
If, as a result of fieldwork, archaeological sites are identified and will be reported, site numbers can be requested from staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following information will be required:
- Associated state project number
- New site count per county(ies).
- Requesting organization name.
- Shapefile or geodatabase. More information here (link- “
