Artifact Report, State Recreation Areas Arbitrary Investigation 1979-1985


U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Louisville District archaeological collections were sent to the Veterans Curation Program’s (VCP) 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 State Recreation Areas Arbitrary Investigation 1979–1985 are discussed in the report 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 of Ball State University guidelines were followed. Upon completion of the curation management project, the collection was sent to Applied Archaeology Laboratories, Ball State University (AAL) for permanent curation.
