Summary

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Mobile District archaeological collections were sent to the Veterans Curation Project’s (VCP) Augusta, Georgia laboratory in the fall of 2009. Before arriving at the Augusta VCP Laboratory, the artifacts were housed temporarily in the Brockington and Associates laboratory in Norcross, GA. During this time, technicians in Norcross conducted a NAGPRA inventory, which is documented in Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA ) Preliminary Inventory and Summary Report for Fourteen Sites in the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway; Lowndes , Tishimingo, Itawamba, Clay, and Monroe Counties, Mississippi, and Two Sites at Walter F. George Reservoir Stewart and Clay Counties , Georgia (Hines, et al. 2010). The Augusta VCP laboratory is a USACE, St. Louis District’s Mandatory Center of Expertise for the Curation and Management of Archaeological Collections project, which is staffed through Brockington and Associates. After 22 September 2011, the collection was transferred to the Charleston, SC branch of Brockington and Associates and processing was completed by Laboratory Technician Anna Green and Laboratory Supervisor Blair Stec.

The procedures employed by the Augusta VCP and Brockington and Associates laboratories to re-house the archaeological material from the Rood’s Landing 1955 investigation are discussed below. In the re-housing process of each investigative effort of the USACE, Mobile District collection, the same standard procedures, including the University of Georgia (UGA), Laboratory of Archaeology, Athens, guidelines, were followed. Upon completion of the curation management project, the collection will be sent to the UGA Laboratory of Archaeology, for permanent curation. Additional information regarding this investigation can be found in the Rood’s Landing (9SW1) 1955-1985 archives collection, which is currently housed at the UGA Laboratory of Archaeology in Athens, Georgia. Information about other investigations conducted at 9SW1 can be found in Collection Management Project Report for Rood’s Landing (9SW1) Arbitrary 1968-1979 and Collection Management Project Report for Rood’s Landing Tom Meltzer (9SW1) 1975 and 1980, both produced by the VCP in 2011.

The procedures employed by the Mobile District VCP to rehouse the archaeological material from the Rood's Landing (9SW1) 1955 investigation are discussed in the Artifact Report. The report can be found in tDAR at https://core.tdar.org/document/426829.
