As archaeological investigations are planned and conducted, documents are created, such as proposals, permits, inventories, field notebooks, maps, site plans, historic records, photographs, and reports. These documents help us to understand the processes used by archaeologists to survey an area or excavate a site.


VCP laboratory technicians assess archives collection condition, create initial inventories, analyze document types, reorganize folders into a logical order and create boxes to re-house collections, manage databases, scan photographs and documents, and write summary reports.
