For this project, we are hoping to address the potential problems and help refine future work between the storage in the Cummings Center and the Anthropology Department. Some of the research questions that we have are: What is in the Cummings Center from the Anthropology Department? What type of techniques is the most beneficial in storing archaeological material? How are the items stored in the Cummings Center? Is this method of storage going to protect or damage the artifact? Do we still need to keep this material, returned to its original owner, or can it be deaccessioned? We plan to create an inventory sheet that helps to answer the previous question. We plan to learn how to go through a collection and store it effectively so that later that information can be uploaded to a database for easy access. Our goal is to create a guide to help future students learn how to store an archaeological collection to fit within the Cummings Center storage and be accessed by individuals for research or teaching purposes. I will also look more closely at the history of Lock 2 in Clinton, Ohio. Bringing to light the town history in the Canal Era.
