Excerpt from Addendum IV, Vol. 23: A Guide to Research Papers in the Archaeology of North Carolina on File With the Archaeology Branch of the North Carolina Division of Archives and History
In 1980 the North Carolina Archaeological Council published the first in a series of bibliographies on the archaeology of North Carolina. Appearing as Publication 13 in the Council Series, A guide to research papers in the archaeology of North Carolina on file with the Archaeology Branch of the North Carolina Division of Archives and History contained 661 titles of papers, articles and reports. Most of these works, which cover archaeological projects throughout the state, were unpublished. In 1981 and 1982, the bibliographic series was updated with Addenda I and II, Publications 14 and 17, respectively. Addendum III followed with 230 entries in 1984 as Publication 21. Since the publication of those bibliographies, the Branch's collection of master's theses, articles and research and contract reports has continued to grow, prompting the compilation of the fifth bibliography, Publication 23. Addendum IV represents the receipt, through the cut-off date of March 31, 1985, of 240 titles by 82 authors.
As in the preceding bibliographies, the works listed represent a wide variety of research topics, techniques, purposes and formats. The geographical focus varies from surveys of one-acre tracts to overviews of several counties. Papers 'missed' by earlier bibliographies, or received long after their completion have been included if they came in during the accumulation time for this addendum.
In each citation we have included the name and address of the individual, institution or agency that performed the work described in the report after manuscript on file. This referencing format supplies the researcher with the information needed to contact the individuals or institutions retaining not only the manuscript cited, but also (presumably) the notes, photographs and artifacts generated by the project in question. Specific inquiries and requests for copies should be addressed to these individuals or institutions. Addresses of most of the contributors have been abbreviated in the citations; a full list of contributors' addresses appears in the appendix.
