John Sprinkle will discuss his new book, "Crafting Preservation Criteria: The National Register of Historic Places and American Historic Preservation". This presentation elucidates the “prehistory” of the National Register of Historic Places, with a special focus on the evolution of the concept of archaeological significance, and helps practitioners and students alike connect with the origins of preservation’s contemporary paradigm. A resident of Alexandria’s Rosemont Historic District, John Sprinkle is the Chair of the Alexandria Historical Restoration and Preservation Commission. The lecture and book signing are sponsored by the Friends of Alexandria Archaeology (FOAA) and light refreshments will be served.
