New Collections Arrive at MAC Lab

Recently, artifact collections from several State Highways Administration archaeology excavations in Anne Arundel County were dropped off at the MAC Lab. Curators were on hand to inspect the collections to be sure that they meet Maryland State curatorial standards. After inspection, the collections are entered into a database by project (site) and curators create accession files from the paperwork that the archaeologist turned in along with the artifacts. Then, the boxes are labeled and added to the MAC Lab’s collections storage.
