Finding Aid, Newburgh Locks and Dam N.D.

Part of the Newburgh Locks and Dam N.D. project

Author(s): Joshua Weigler

Year: 2012


The Veterans Curation Program utilizes the standard archival practice of unique naming of collections. The purpose of this practice is to avoid redundant and confusing collection names commonly found with archaeological investigations. Therefore, this collection is referred to as “Newburgh Locks and Dam N.D.” This name is consistent throughout the finding aid, the filefolder, and the box labels. The extent of this collection is a quarter of a linear inch.

The Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology (GBL) artifact catalog and inventory for this investigation were sent to the VCP electronically, printed on acid free paper, and housed with the associated documentation. Scanned asset numbers were not assigned, because the files were uploaded into the digital imaging database directly from the file sent by GBL.

Several files were added at a later date (21 May 2012). These files were copied on acid-free paper and incorporated into the archival collection. The documents include survey forms, notes about fieldwork by various researchers, and a report addendum. These files do not provide definitive information about the investigation when the artifacts were recovered, but rather information that was gathered about the site throughout 1972 to 1980. One site number was recorded, 12W83. The county abbreviation stands for Warrick County.
