Artefact Type   Category 5: Tools & Equipment for Science & Technology: Field Equipment For non-scientific and non-transportation equipment such as sleeping bags, tents.    
Artefact Type   Unknown   1
Artefact Type Category 1: Structures   Building An artefact originally created primarily to provide or define a space with a controllable climate - usually through enclosure - for human activities. This classification may include permanent structures, such as garages or office buildings, or portable structures, such as tents. This classification includes most man-made structures. Houses, barns, warehouses, train stations, and jails are all primarily intended to provide spaces that can be kept warm or cool and dry. Architectural samples integral to buildings, such as wall sections or roof sections should be catalogued in this classification as parts of buildings. Separable, distinct and interchangeable components, such as doorknobs or window sashes, should be classified as "Building Components."   130
Artefact Type Category 1: Structures   Building Component An artefact originally created as a separate, distinct and generally interchangeable structural or decorative part of a building (though such artefacts - hinges, for example, - can be used in artefacts besides buildings, such as gates or tables). Though building components are distinct objects, they function as parts of larger structures rather than as independent units. This classification includes such things as mantels and window frames. Excluded from this classification are parts of buildings or other structures that lack distinctiveness or interchangeability, such as roofs, chimneys, or joists. Also excluded from this classification are parts of buildings that are not integral parts of the structure, such as furnishings, lighting devices, and plumbing fixtures , all of which are listed in the Furnishings category.   280
Artefact Type Category 1: Structures   Building Fragment   26
Artefact Type Category 1: Structures   Building Fragments: Tents and Camping   1
Artefact Type Category 1: Structures   Building Tents and Camping   13
Artefact Type Category 1: Structures   Category 1: Structures Artefacts originally created to define space for human activities or to be used as components of space defining artefacts.   1
Artefact Type Category 1: Structures   Other Structure An artefact originally created primarily to modify the environment or landscape or to define a space for some reason besides climate control. This classification includes dams, mines, and bridges. Structures, such as sports complexes that are primarily intended to provide controlled access and convenient seating should be placed in this classification. Some other structures may have climate controlled spaces, such as the space under dome in a stadium or the generating room of a hydroelectric dam, but these spaces serve a secondary role to the function of the structures.   13
Artefact Type Category 1: Structures   Site Feature An artefact originally created as distinct element that is associated with a site, a building, or other structure. Rather than functioning simply as a part of a larger structure, a site feature is an independent entity that complements other structures. This classification includes such things as bird-baths, flagpoles, gates and fences.   1
Artefact Type Category 1: Structures   Unclassified Structure   4
Artefact Type Category 1: Structures: Buildings: Station   station building, An artefact originally created primarily to provide or define a space with a controllable climate - usually through enclosure - for human activities. This classification may include permanent structures, such as garages or office buildings, or portable structures, such as tents. This classification includes most man-made structures. Houses, barns, warehouses, train stations, and jails are all primarily intended to provide spaces that can be kept warm or cool and dry. Architectural samples integral to buildings, such as wall sections or roof sections should be catalogued in this classification as parts of buildings. Separable, distinct and interchangeable components, such as doorknobs or window sashes, should be classified as "Building Components." Station: Any building located at an Antarctic station.   1
