Preventive conservation at archaeological sites is a broad range of measures, aimed at passively mitigating deterioration. Measures such as:defining significance, risk management, documentation, understanding the depositional environment and monitoring changes, the use of covers and shelters, emergency preparedness, and site management, are briefly discussed. Incorporating preventative measures in a collaborative multidisciplinary approach creates the foundation for extending the useable life of a site and its values
