Brookville Reservoir Survey 1991-1992

Summary

An archaeological investigation of Brookville Reservoir was led by Beth Kolbe of Applied Archaeology Laboratories, Ball State University during 1991 and 1992. Brookville Reservoir spans Franklin and Union counties and is located along the east fork of the Whitewater River in the Whitewater drainage. Archaeological investigation of the Brookville Reservoir were performed to evaluate the nature and significance of sites in the area, determine how sites were being impacted by shoreline erosion, determine the significance of the Glidewell Mound site (12FR24), and synthesize the archaeological information in a way that was useful for management and interpretation of the sites. To meet these goals Kolbe used several methods including an extensive literature review, a 590 acre shoreline survey, an inventory and resurvey of previously recorded sites, and test excavations at Glidewell Mound (Kolbe 1992: 1).

The digital materials in this collection were processed by the Veterans Curation Program (VCP), and include the artifact database, select artifact photographs, artifact report, finding aid, project report, and scanned asset key. Additional digital materials held by the VCP include additional artifact images, artifact recording forms, the document folder listing, the human remains context list, initial data sheet, and labels. For additional information on these materials, refer to the Finding Aid.
