(KLIX)- Recent Fires have exposed a number of Archaeological sites this summer in Idaho. Bureau of Land Management officials are asking people to let them be if you come across them on public land. Many artifacts are protected under the Archaeological Resources Protection Act. It prohibits the excavation, removal, and damaging of archaeological resources. Suzann Henrikson, an archaeologist with BLM says it may be tempting to pick up artifacts like arrow heads, but she says its best to let them be. Henrikson says if you do find something, admiring it and leave it where it lies. Henrikson says that includes items left by early settlers.
