Artifact Report, Big Bangs and Little Bangs Mounds (12HU25 and 12HU26) 1964


U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Louisville District archaeological collections were sent to the Veterans Curation Project’s (VCP) St. Louis laboratory in the fall of 2009. The VCP St. Louis laboratory was established by USACE, St. Louis District’s Mandatory Center of Expertise for the Curation and Management of Archaeological Collections using American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 funds and staffed through Brockington and Associates, Inc.

The procedures employed to re-house the archaeological material from the Big Bangs and Little Bangs Mounds investigation 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 Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology, Indiana University (GBL) guidelines were followed. Upon completion of the curation management project, collections were sent to GBL for permanent curation.
