Artifact inventory
August 11, 2018 version, includes 2018 acquistions until this date.
No inventory was examined, this list was compiled from several existing lists and one recently discovered.
Next steps are daunting in discovering what we have, stabilizing and preserving the items. Potentially expensive and definitely time consuming.
