This report presents the results of inventory and analysis of artifacts associated with Shiner's Trench, Fort Frederica National Monument, St. Simons Island, Georgia. The inventory and analysis was conducted by two students enrolled in an independent studies laboratory course during the spring of 2000 (170 hours) and two student-interns (480 hours) during the following summer. The internships were part of a W ASO Archaeology and Ethnography Program. About 20 hours of data input student assistance also occurred during the fall of 2000. The analysis was performed at the Jeffrey L. Brown Institute of Archaeology laboratory at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC), under the supervision of Dr. Nicholas Honerkamp, Director of the Institute and Principa!Jnvestigator (PI) for the project. The UTC researchers worked closely with the National Park Service's Southeastern Archaeological Center (SEAC) and the staff at Fort Frederica during the project. The primary goal of the research was to (1) generate an inventory of artifacts from the trench, particularly ceramic remains; (2) evaluate the condition of the inventoried collections; and (3) make recommendations concerning the future disposition of the artifacts. A total of approximately 670 person-hours was devoted to the inventory tasks, excluding supervision and report preparation by the PI.
