labeling artifacts

We also spent time labeling the artifacts in the lab.  We used a barrier coat of Paraloid B-72 applied to a discrete area of the artifact to write the catalog number on using an archival ink pen.  This would allow the artifact to be linked to its catalog number, and the archaeological information in the database, in case it ever got disassociated from the label in the bag it was packed in.
