How do we know whats significant?
Sites or objects
  • That are associated with events that have made a
    significant contribution to the broad patterns of
    our history or
  • That are associated with the lives of significant
    persons in our past or
  • That embody the distinctive characteristics of a
    type, period, or method of construction, or that
    represent the work of a master, or that possess
    high artistic values, or that represent a
    significant and distinguishable entity whose
    components may lack individual distinction or
  • That have yielded, or may be likely to yield,
    information important in history or prehistory.
