Pit 57: Level 2

Completed on December 21, 2013 by Jan Ciegler and Odess and David Brinkman. We took advantage of a warm December day to complete the pit we started the day before. We found several really nice pottery pieces but the most significant was the round bottom edge/base of a pearlware bowl. The curvature of this late 1700's piece makes the base about 5 inches in diameter. We also found what looks like several Native American pottery pieces.

Pit 57: Level 2 produced: 18 pieces of pottery, 26 pieces of glass, 13 nails, a pipe bowl pieces, and several possible Native American pottery pieces.
