Abstract:

At the request of the U.S. Navy Atlantic Division, Naval Facilities Engineering Command LANTDIV, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Mandatory Center of Expertise for the Curation and Management of Archaeological Collections MCX-CMAC, located at the St. Louis District, conducted a survey of archaeological collections and associated documentation generated from archaeological investigations conducted within the boundaries of LANTDIV facilities located in North Carolina, Puerto Rico, Virginia, and West Virginia. Site visits were conducted during 1994 to assess the archaeological collections. MCX-CMAC identified collections from 14 LANTDIV facilities, totaling 198 cubic feet of artifacts and approximately 20 linear feet of associated documentation. Most collections require at least partial rehabilitation to comply with federal regulation 36 CFR Part 79, Curation of Federally-Owned and Administered Archeological Collections.
