WASHINGTON – The present meets the past to benefit the future.  The National Park Service announced today the award of $427,000 in Preservation Technology and Training grants to fund innovative research, training, and publications that develop new technologies or adapt existing technologies to preserve cultural resources. 

“These projects bring the best skills and technology of the present to preserve the treasures of the past for future generations,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis.  “With the Centennial of the National Park Service approaching in 2016, we continue to adapt and improve preservation methods so that these historic places are around for our Bicentennial.”

The National Park Service’s National Center for Preservation Technology and Training strives to create new technologies and training opportunities to preserve prehistoric and historic resources throughout the United States.  Since 1994, the center has awarded more than $9.2 million in grants to fund science and technology-based projects in historic preservation.

Grant projects incorporate modern technology and techniques in documentation and conservation that extend beyond the grant project.  The Pennsylvania State University will study energy and indoor environmental quality to help building owners better understand how these measures are impacted by the adjustment of windows, insulation, and mechanical systems.  Research on new surveillance systems by the State University of New York will help better protect archaeological sites from looting and vandalism.
