U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Louisville District archaeological collections were sent to the Veterans Curation Program’s (VCP) Saint Louis laboratory in May 2011. The VCP Saint 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 the Field School at Sites 12WB90 and 12WB120 1981-1984 investigation are discussed in the report and follow those procedures utilized by the VCP Saint Louis laboratory. In the re-housing process of each investigative effort of the USACE, Louisville District collection, the same standard procedures and the Applied Archaeology Laboratory (AAL) at Ball State University guidelines were followed. Upon completion of the curation management project, the collection was sent to AAL for permanent curation.

The artifact database can be found in tDAR (
