Summary

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Louisville District archaeological collections were sent to the Veterans Curation Project’s (VCP) St. Louis laboratory in the fall of 2009. The VCP St. Louis laboratory was established by USACE, St. Louis District’s Mandatory Center of Expertise for the Curation and Management of Archaeological Collections using American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 funds and staffed through Brockington and Associates, Inc. Human skeletal remains (HSR) were removed from the USACE, Louisville District collection and brought to St. Louis by USACE, St. Louis District physical anthropologist Cathy Van Arsdale prior to the materials being sent to the VCP lab. Because of the sensitive nature of human remains, it was determined that they would remain at the USACE, St. Louis District archaeological laboratory to be processed and labeled by Corps employees. The procedures employed by the St. Louis VCP to re-house the archaeological material from the Uniontown investigation are discussed below. In the re-housing process of each investigative effort of the USACE, Louisville District collection, the same standard procedures and Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology (GBL) guidelines were followed. Upon completion of this curation management project, these collections were sent to GBL for permanent curation.

The digital materials in this collection were processed by the Veterans Curation Program (VCP) and include the artifact database, artifact report, finding aid, and select artifact photographs. Additional digital materials held by the VCP include additional artifact photographs, document folder listing, GBL catalog, and initial data collection. For additional information on these materials, refer to the Finding Aid.
