Abstract
  • Cultivated plants are often living artifacts that can aid in evaluation of historic or cultural landscapes. However, a working definition for “culturally significant plant” is currently lacking in the guidance literature for the cultural resource management practitioners. Based on a review of the literature on cultivated plants as indicators of historically and culturally significant sites a suggested working definition is provided. A discussion of how vegetation can assist archaeologists in the identification and interpretation, as a biotic cultural resource, a contributing feature, and a diagnostic tool for evaluation using the National Register of Historic Places eligibility framework is presented.
