This report presents the results of the first survey of excavation research facilities in the United States. A questionnaire was designed and sent to 437 organizations, including universities, research institutes, laboratories, federal agencies, state agencies, local agencies, consulting firms, contractors, and manufacturers. A total of 115 responses, of which 76 were positive, were obtained. The data obtained from these replies are presented in this document. The information includes areas of competence, laboratory facilities with an emphasis on unique or special apparatus, field instrumentation and equipment, available field sites, program experience, and key personnel. Thus, a capsule summary of the capabilities of an organization can be obtained from this survey.
