This volume provides case studies about successful strategies employed in diverse world areas for the protection of archaeological heritage resources. Some chapters focus on a search for solutions arrived at by diverse groups of people working in specific areas rather than simply describing loss of cultural heritage. Other chapters provide a long-term view of intensified efforts at protection of archaeological resources. The authors describe challenges and solutions derived by concerned people in eastern Asia (China, Japan, Thailand), West Africa, Easter Island, Jordan, Honduras and more than one area of Peru. All of the authors draw upon deep, personal involvement with the protection of cultural heritage in each area. This volume is a timely addition to a growing number of conferences and publications about the management of cultural heritage-both archaeological and historical. Anne P. Underhill is Professor of Anthropology at Yale University and Curator at the Yale Peabody Museum. Her interests include the development of complex societies in East Asia, the archaeology of East Asia, craft specialization, ceramic ethnoarchaeology, settlement organization, analysis of mortuary ritual and museums. Underhills field research has focused on settlement survey and excavations at Longshan sites in the Rizhao area of Shandong, China. In 2008 she was honored for her contributions by Premier Wen Jiabao with a National Friendship Award of the Peoples Republic of China. Lucy C. Salazar is a Research Associate in the Department of Anthropology at Yale University and a Curatorial Affiliate at the Yale Peabody Museum. She is an authority on Inca archaeology and the early prehistory of Peru. She has over three decades of experience in archeological fieldwork and museum research, and has co-directed numerous excavations in Peru. Salazar has written extensively on daily life at Machu Picchu, has several chapters in books and has received grant support for her work on the Incas from the NEH, NSF and the Josef Albers Fund. She coauthored the book Machu Picchu: Unveiling the Mystery of the Incas (2004). She has served at the Board of the Center for the Study of Machu Picchu and the Inca Culture at the National University, San Antonio de Abad, Cuzco (2012). She is involved in the study, research and conservation of the Bingham Collections and has installed the very successful traveling exhibit Machu Picchu: Unveiling the Mystery of the Incas.

The OST-10 is a 500 Series enclosure in a 3U Rack format, able to accommodate up to 10 modules. As the rest of the new Heritage Audio line of 500 Series enclosures, it features ´´ON SLOT” Technology (OTS).´´ON SLOT TECHNOLOGY” takes advantage of last generation power electronics to handle power supply on a ´´per slot” basis. Each slot has its own power supply linear regulation stages; therefore modules are isolated from the rest. They just share the metal enclosure.With literally hundreds of brands making 500 series modules, we at Heritage Audio think this is the professional way of handling this reliably, eliminating issues often associated with sharing power between different modules of different brands and natures.Each slot features test LEDs for checking correct power operation (red for +16v, green for -16v), located aside of the slot connector.Thanks to the use of OST, the power capability of the OST-10 is 400mA per rail per slot maximum, with an overall of 1.6A (1.8A non continuous) per rail, whichever is reached first. Each slot has its own red (+16v) and green (-16v) LEDs for easy testing of the power status.The RAF Blue Gray enclosure is made out of heavy gauge steel with an aluminum front panel.Specifications:• On Slot Technology• Maximum audio rails current: 1.8A per rail, or 400mA per rail per slot, whatever is reached first.• Maximum phantom power current: 140mA.• Operating voltage: 100-240 VAC.
