U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Louisville District archaeological collections were sent to the Veterans Curation Program’s (VCP) laboratory in the St. Louis laboratory in May 2011. The VCP St. Louis laboratory is a USACE, St. Louis District’s Mandatory Center of Expertise for the Curation and Management of Archaeological Collections program, which is staffed through Brockington and Associates, an archaeological contract firm located in Norcross, Georgia.

The procedures employed to re-house the archaeological material from the Huntington Municipal Airport 1993 investigation are discussed below and follow those procedures utilized by the VCP St. Louis laboratory. In the re-housing process of each investigative effort of the USACE, Louisville District collection, the same standard procedures and Applied Archaeology Laboratory (AAL) at Ball State University guidelines were followed. Upon completion of the curation management project, the collection will be sent to AAL for permanent curation.

The procedures employed by the St. Louis VCP to rehouse the archaeological material from the Archaeological Intensive Assessment of Huntington Municipal Airport (12HU1068) 1993 investigation are discussed in the Artifact Report.
