Upper Voltaire Mixed Use Project – Historic Artifact Analysis, San Diego, CA, PanGIS
Senior Archaeologist/Historian Mr. Mengers and lab personnel conducted artifact analysis, report preparation, and curation activities related to the Upper Voltaire Mixed Use Project. This project was located on a one-acre triangular-shaped parcel in the Point Loma neighborhood of San Diego.
Per CEQA, the Lead Agency (City of San Diego), determined the need for artifact collection, curation, and documentation. Each artifact was cleaned, photographed, cataloged, and prepared for curation following San Diego Archaeological Center guidelines.
Artifacts were analyzed using Stephen Van Wormer’s historic artifact analysis system, including activity group classification, development of functional artifact profiles, and bottled product and culinary bottle analysis.
Mr. Mengers acted as the Lead Archaeologist for the analysis, co-authored the Historic Artifact Analysis report, and facilitated curation of the assemblage at the San Diego Archaeological Center.
