Artifact Catalog, Archaeological Investigation of Fort Norfolk (44NR1) 1977

Summary

This collection is referred to as "Archaeological Investigation of Fort Norfolk (44NR1) 1977.” This name is consistent throughout the finding aid, the file folders, and the box labels. The extent of this collection is a quarter (0.25) linear inch.

The documents date from 1977 to 1979. The investigation primarily occurred in 1977, which explains the date in the project name. The range of dates includes additional archaeological catalogs dating to 1979. The majority of the documents were originally housed in an archival folder and were generally in good condition. The documents were in a clear discernible original order, and this order was mostly retained.

Various handwritten notes containing artifact descriptions were found in Boxes 1 to 2 and Boxes 4 to 7 of the affiliated artifact collection. The documents were removed from the boxes, cleaned, humidified, acidic tape was removed from several pages, and minor tears were mended with acid-free mending tissue tape. The documents were integrated into the investigation’s Analysis Records (Folder 1/1).

The procedures employed by the Norfolk VCP to rehouse the archaeological material from the Archaeological Investigation of Fort Norfolk (44NR1) 1977 investigation are discussed in the Artifact Report. The report can be found in tDAR at https://core.tdar.org/document/436107.
