Grants and Contracts

Since 1981, the Institute received funding for over 50 grant and contract archaeological research projects involving the award of approximately $800,000; in addition, the Institute had several major projects funded prior to 1981. Agencies and organizations for whom research has been performed include the Department of the Navy, Department of the Army, the Tennessee Department of Transportation, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Department of the Interior (including the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park), the General Services Administration, the City of Charleston, the City of Chattanooga, Hamilton County (Tennessee), Bluff Furnace of Chattanooga, Inc., and increasingly, several private-sector sponsors. These projects were located throughout the Southeast, including Chattanooga and areas within East Tennessee; Charleston, South Carolina; Savannah, Georgia; Camden County, Georgia; and St. Simons Island, Georgia. In this period the Institute has generated numerous professional reports and its personnel have made non-contractual scholarly contributions in the form of papers delivered at professional meetings and by organizing and chairing symposia on urban and industrial archaeology, cultural resource management, and method and theory in historical archaeology. In addition, Council and Honerkamp coauthored, with Dr. M. E. Will, a University of Tennessee Press book, Industry and Technology in Antebellum Tennessee: The Archaeology of Bluff Furnace, that was published in 1992. An Institute bibliography for the period 1981-1999 is appended.
