U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Louisville District archaeological collection was sent to the Veterans Curation Project’s (VCP) St. Louis laboratory in the fall of 2009. The VCP St. Louis laboratory is a USACE, St. Louis District’s Mandatory Center of Expertise for the Curation and Management of Archaeological Collections project, which is staffed through Brockington and Associates, an archaeological contract firm located in Norcross, Georgia.

In the fall of 2010, a portion of this collection was completed and returned to Glenn A. Black Laboratory (GBL) at the Indiana University for permanent curation. Between the fall of 2009 and the fall of 2010, additional human skeletal remains and artifacts from the Mary Ann Cole Site were found at GBL. These were given to the VCP lab managers during the fall of 2010 to process with the rest of USACE, Louisville’s collection. Because of the sensitive nature of human remains, it had been determined that they will be processed and labeled by Corps employees at the St. Louis District archaeological laboratory. This collection of artifacts and human skeletal remains from a 1982 investigation at the Mary Ann Cole site were processed in its entirety at the St. Louis District archaeological laboratory.

The procedures employed to re-house the archaeological materials from the Mary Ann (12CR1), 1982 investigation are discussed below and follow those procedures utilized by the VCP St. Louis laboratory. In the re-housing process of each investigative effort, the same standard procedures and GBL guidelines were followed. Upon completion of the curation management project, materials were returned to GBL for permanent curation.
