U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Mobile District archaeological collections were sent to the Veterans Curation Program’s (VCP) Augusta, Georgia laboratory in the fall of 2009. The Augusta VCP 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. After 22 September 2011, the collection was transferred to the Charleston, SC branch of Brockington and Associates and processing was completed by Laboratory Technician Anna Green with assistance from Laboratory Supervisor Blair Stec.

The procedures employed by the Augusta VCP and Brockington and Associates laboratories to process and re-house the archaeological material from the Blackmon site are discussed below. In the re-housing process of each investigative effort of the USACE, Mobile District collection, the same standard procedures, including University of Georgia (UGA), Laboratory of Archaeology, Athens, Georgia guidelines, were followed. Upon completion of the curation management project, the collection was sent to UGA Laboratory of Archeology for permanent curation. Additional information regarding these collections can be found in the Blackmon (1BR25) 1983 and N.D. archives collection, which is currently housed at the UGA Laboratory of Archaeology in Athens, Georgia.
