Documentation of Perishable Artifacts

Agency: Bureau of Land Management
Principal Investigator: Laurie D. Webster

This project will survey and photodocument approximately 500 archaeological textiles, baskets, and other perishable artifacts in the Green and Lang collections at the Field Museum of Natural History from Grand Gulch and adjacent lands managed by the Monticello Field Office of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Excavated more than a century ago, most of these collections are still unpublished and unknown to archaeologists, land managers and the general public.
