An Archaeological Collections Inventory for Naval Air Weapons Station, China Lake, California
Between October 1992 and March 1994, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Mandatory Center of Expertise for the Curation and Management of Archaeological Collections (MCX-CMAC), located at the St. Louis District, assisted the Naval Air Weapons Station, China Lake (NAWS China Lake), California, in their efforts to comply with the directives of federal regulation 36 CFR Part 79 and Public Law 101-601 (Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act-NAGPRA).
The project was conducted in three phases, all of which are documented in this report. The first phase of the project was to conduct a curation-needs assessment to identity, locate, and evaluate archaeological collections recovered from NAWS China Lake lands. The second phase of the project was conducted to provide NAWS China Lake personnel with both summary and inventory information that would comply with the directives of NAGPRA. Finally, St. Louis District staff physically arranged and rehabilitated all NAWS China Lake archaeological documentation and created a comprehensive guide to the documentation for future research use.
