Artifact Catalog, Lake George Mitigation

Part of the Lake George Mitigation project

Year: 2018

Summary

The procedures employed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), St. Louis District, Curation and Archives Analysis Branch, Mandatory Center of Expertise for the Curation and Management of Archaeological Collections to rehouse the archaeological material from USACE, Vicksburg District are discussed below. In the rehousing process of each investigative effort for the Vicksburg District collection, staff generally followed the same standard procedures. Upon completion of the curation management project, the Vicksburg District collection will be sent to the Cobb Institute of Archaeology at Mississippi State University for permanent curation.

The first step in the rehousing process is to obtain copies of cultural resource reports, artifact catalog sheets, and field notes pertaining to the collections from the St. Louis District archivist processing the document collection. The analytical techniques employed by each organization to recover and process the collections were reviewed to gain familiarity with the archaeological work that had been conducted on the sites. Archival material sent along with this investigative effort included the final report, an artifact catalog, and a 3.5-inch computer disk containing the original artifact catalog and a list of field specimen (FS) numbers and corresponding provenience information.

A Phase I cultural resource survey was conducted between December 1990 and February 1991 in the area around Lake George, Yazoo County, Mississippi, by R. Christopher Goodwin & Associates. The survey was undertaken prior to the planned reforestation of the property. Dr. R. Christopher Goodwin served as principal investigator; Stephen Hinks and James M. Wojtala acted as field supervisors. Eleven areas were selected for the survey because of their high probability for archaeological sites. The fieldwork yielded twelve sites: 22YZ717, 22YZ718, 22YZ719, 22YZ720, 22YZ721, 22YZ722, 22YZ723, 22YZ724, 22YZ725, 22YZ726, 22YZ727, and 22YZ728. A subsoil investigation was conducted only at site 22YZ727 to test for the probability of buried cultural deposits on the site. For more information on this project, see the final report (Goodwin et al. 1992).

The procedures to rehouse the archaeological material from this investigation are discussed in the Artifact Report. The report can be found in tDAR at https://core.tdar.org/document/446606
