Container List


Series I. Artifact research data, 1940-1975

Physical Description: 4.7 linear feet (19 boxes)

Scope and Content Note

The organization and sequencing of the materials in this series preserves Oldeberg's original arrangement. His inventory of artifacts falls into three initial groups. The bulk of the material is a group of cards cataloging objects made from a variety of metals. The metals represented here include gold, silver, iron, bronze, copper and lead. This main group of objects is supplemented by a separate, small group of silver objects, as well as a group of related wooden objects. Oldeberg's large initial grouping of general metal objects is further subdivided into four chronological and cultural groups. Each box in the container list below holds the contents of one of Oldeberg's original boxes. The original boxes were labeled with a chronological period, but the intended order of the multiple boxes for each period and the precise relationship of the cards within each of these boxes remains unclear.
