Summary

The USACE, Louisville District obtained the collection through an archaeological test excavation at the Paynetown Light Site in the Monroe Reservoir located in Monroe County, Indiana. In order to evaluate the archaeological significance of the site and assess its eligibility for the National Register of Historic Places, GBL performed the investigation under contract with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Reservoirs. The investigation was prompted by continuing impacts to the site in the form of severe erosion and informal recreational activities.

Fieldwork consisted of hand excavation of trenches conducted under the supervision of Patrick J. Munson (Principal Investigator) and Jeffery A. Myers. Work began on October 11, 1986 and continued intermittently until March 29, 1987. There is one accession number, 6812, associated with this investigation of Site 12MO193 (Myers and Munson 1987). The county symbol that is employed is MO, which represents Monroe County, Indiana.

The digital materials in this collection were processed by the Veterans Curation Program (VCP), and include the artifact database, artifact report, finding aid, original investigation report, oversized material database, photographic material database, scanned asset key, and select archival and artifact photographs. Additional digital materials held by the VCP include additional archival and artifact photographs, box inventories, card stock inserts, correspondence, document folder listing, feature records, flotation sample analysis, GBL catalog, maps, notes, oversized material labels, radiocarbon sample data sheet, records removal sheet, site photographs, and trench summaries.
