Hartgen Archeological Associates, Inc.

This collection contains the digital library of Hartgen Archeological Associates, Inc.

Currently, the collection contains digital resources related to the archaeology and history of the City of Albany, Albany County, New York. This city is one of the oldest continuously occupied Euro-American settlements in the United States; it dates to the establishment of Fort Orange, a Dutch West India Company military and trading outpost, in 1621. The collection includes digital records (reports, representative images, and data sets) about four Phase III data retrievals that Hartgen Archeological Associates, Inc. has conducted at four separate sites in the City of Albany, Albany County, New York since 1988. The sites include 1) 625 Broadway Historic Archaeological Site, 2) Quackenbush Square Parking Facility Historic Archaeological Site, 3) SUCF Parking Garage Historic Archaeological Site, and 4) Sheridan Hollow Parking Garage Historic Archaeological Site. The sites selected for digital record preservation feature elements of contact-period, colonial, and nineteenth-century contexts. Together, they provide a detailed picture of the archaeology of Albany and colonial urban development in the Northeast during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Records pertaining to each Phase III data recovery project at each of the sites are associated with individual subcollections.

The collection also contains final reports pertaining to Hartgen's work at seven other archaeological sites in the Albany area. The additional reports are associated with the tDAR project titled "Phase III Data Retrievals on Historic Archaeological Sites in Albany, New York."
