Since 1988, New South Associates has been providing cultural resources consulting services throughout the southeast, the Caribbean, and internationally. Since then, we have completed more than 50 projects in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Egypt, Mexico, Tanzania, and the Republic of Panamá. Much of the work that New South Associates has conducted has been within U.S. territories, assisting companies and agencies in complying with federal historic preservation regulations in the Caribbean. Other international projects have been primarily grant funded, for organizations including: the Egyptian Antiquities Project of the American Research Center in Egypt; the International Center for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property, Rome; and the American Foundation of the University of the West Indies, New York.
In Central America, New South Associates prepared the Historic Properties Management Plan (HPMP) for the U.S. Army South, Republic of Panamá, Central America. Preparation of the HPMP involved research on previous archaeological investigations in Panamá, including the Playa Venado pre-Columbian cemetery site. Other examples of our international and Caribbean work include:
• North Sinai Salvage, Conservation and Documentation Project, Phase I, El Salaam (Egypt);
• Gorgas Hospital HABS Project, Ancon-Balboa, Former Canal Zone (Republic of Panamá);
• Phase I Archaeological Survey and Phase II Testing of the Christiansted Bypass, St. Croix (U.S. Virgin Islands);
• Condition and Management Assessment of Ten Selected Rock Art Sites within the Kondoa-Irangi Conservation Area (Tanzania);
• The Conservation and Management of Inkamachay and Pumamachay, Chuquisacha (Bolivia); and
• Condition Assessment, Recording, and Graffiti Removal at the Warminster/ Genus Rock Art Shelter, St. Elizabeth Parish (Jamaica).
