Life of an Artifact: Part 5
Once the artifacts have been sorted, identified, and classified, they are counted, weighed, and put into new bags. These new bags are labeled with the object’s provenience information, item count, weight and a brief description. Now, the artifacts are ready to be entered into the electronic catalog database and given a unique, catalog number. We will be highlighting more artifacts in SEAC’s collection in our “Artifact of the Week” posts.
