Digging In: Documenting, Preserving, and Accessing Fort Ticonderoga’s Archaeological Collection

Author(s): Miranda L Peters

Year: 2019

Summary

This is an abstract from the "Re-discovering the Archaeology Past and Future at Fort Ticonderoga" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.

Although the material unearthed from Fort Ticonderoga’s grounds has interested generations of visitors to the museum, it is only within the past decade that collections have been professionally processed. This paper will discuss the museum’s recent efforts to better document, preserve, and make accessible the museum's vast archaeological collections, including a recent project where over 24,000 objects, mostly onsite, undocumented archaeological collections, were cataloged.
