Explanation of artifact numbers

Every artifact has at least four numbers:

  • Project code (2, for Earhart Project).
  • Expedition number (e.g., 2 stands for for the second expedition--see list of expeditions below).
  • Site identifier (V = village; S = Seven Site).
  • Chronological identifier (order of entry into catalog: 1, 2, 3 ...)

If the artifact is in several pieces we add a slash number for each piece. The shoe eyelet, for example, is 2-2-G (for grave site)-7/6 (the shoe was the seventh artifact found in the area, of which the eyelet was the sixth fragment found).
