Artifact Database, Cultural Resources Survey of Proposed Pennsylvania Route 166 Bridge 1993

Summary

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Pittsburgh District archaeological collections were sent to the Veterans Curation Program’s (VCP) Washington DC laboratory in the winter of 2010 and then moved to the Alexandria laboratory in August 2011. The Alexandria VCP 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 John Milner Associates, Inc., an archaeological contract firm located in Alexandria, Virginia.

In the re-housing process of each investigative effort of the USACE, Pittsburgh District collection, the same standard procedures and The State Museum of Pennsylvania guidelines were followed. Upon completion of the curation management project, the collection was sent to The State Museum of Pennsylvania for permanent curation.

The procedures employed by the Alexandria VCP to rehouse the archaeological material from the Cultural Resources Survey of Proposed Pennsylvania Route 166 Bridge 1993 investigation are discussed in the Artifact Report. The report can be found in tDAR at https://core.tdar.org/document/426057
