Archaeological Information Center (AIC)
The California Historic Research Information System (CHRIS) provides current
archaeological historical, and historic architectural information for the entire
state of California. Our office, called the Archaeological Information Center,
is part of that system. It provides information for San Bernardino County to
- qualified archaeologists and federal and state agencies
- Native Americans
- planning departments
- historians and historical societies
- historic architects and architectural historians
This sensitive information can only be made available to qualified individuals
and agencies with appropriate identification for the protection of the resources.
The information can be used for planning decisions, environmental decisions,
surveys, excavations, and research.
The AIC gathers data and makes recommendations for cultural resource work based
on existing federal and state law, and reviews the resulting reports for accuracy.
The AIC also instructs students, individuals, and archaeological and historical
societies on how to fill out and submit site records, National Register forms,
Landmark Points of Interest forms, and Historic Structure forms; how to map
sites; and how to read topographic maps.
