Pit 13: Level 2

Completed the afternoon of August 26, 2012 by David and Odess Brinkman. Level 2 started off slow but really picked up at the end as we found 2 huge brick pieces, our largest glass piece which may be the base of a container made of dark green glass that we have been finding in other pits. The pottery and nail finds also increased making us think that this could be our best pit if this continues into level 3. After cleaning the items, we also discovered that one piece was a pipe bowl fragment with a common decoration found on pipes from the mid-1700's. During level 2 work, I got a little too close to the sifting screen and took some dirt into the eyes. I didn't think much of it at the time but it would become a problem in a couple of days.

Pit 13: Level 2 produced: 15 pieces of pottery, 15 pieces of glass, 11 nails, a pipe bowl fragment, and our biggest take on brick.
