Smith’s St. Leonard Site Update – What’s New in the Midden

Many interesting things have been discovered by JPPM archaeologists while excavating a midden in the slave quarter at the 18th –century Smith’s St. Leonard tobacco plantation site. A couple of weeks ago, we told you about a chafing dish lid (and the matching chafing dish that had been recovered 7 years ago) and we thought we’d show you some more fun finds from the same area.

These objects are slated for conservation at the MAC Lab and we look forward to showing them to you (all preserved and spiffy) in the future!
