Army veteran Walter Sinnott smooths creases in a long-folded chart and map that contains details about where and at what depths specific artifacts were recovered at a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers construction site decades ago. Sinnott used accepted archiving and curation techniques to unfold the chart without further damaging it. He will also make necessary repairs to the document before deciding how best to curate and preserve it for future historians and researchers.
