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 "Jackson (1BR35) 1968 and N.D.” This name is consistent throughout the finding aid, the file folders, and the box labels. The extent of this collection is two-tenths (0.2) linear inch.

The Jackson site, 1BR35, is primarily a large historic Lower Creek village with minor prehistoric components. The Jackson site was first recorded in 1959 by Harold Huscher and was excavated in 1960-1961 by David L. DeJarnette and a field crew from the University of Alabama. During that time he documented excavation of three burials. In 2000, “Brockington technicians documented a minimum of four individuals, 6 associated funerary objects, and no unassociated funerary objects.” Although these artifacts and human remains are currently documented as being housed at the Laboratory of Human Osteology at the University of Alabama and the David DeJarnette Laboratory of Archaeology in Moundville, Alabama (Atz, Huddleston & Sweeney 2000), there is a possibility that the artifacts from Jackson (1BR35) 1968 and N.D. are NAGPRA-related, and were therefore treated as such. No report is present for the Jackson (1BR35) 1968 and N.D. investigation and no principal investigator is listed. Very little documentation exists on this investigation aside from the provenience information and accession numbers present on some of the artifacts.

This Jackson (1BR35) 1968 and N.D. investigation, as processed by the Augusta VCP, is composed of two possible investigations, one in 1968 (accession number 70017) and another that has no dates or accession number listed. It is possible they represent the same investigation but that a date of collection was simply not written on some of the bags during fieldwork.

This collection consisted of only a single document, which was an inventory sheet of artifacts. The entry for 1BR35A is the only information that relates to this investigation. Other site numbers were included on the inventory, such as; 1BR42, 1BR43, 1BR62, 1BR69, 1BR201B, 9SW3, and 9SW101. This sheet was removed from box two of seven for the corresponding artifact collection. This sheet was copied on to an acid free paper for conservation purposes and included in an archival collection.
