Public Archaeology Starts Today!


While excavating last year, archaeologists and volunteers at the Smith’s St. Leonard site discovered wine bottle fragments, a bridle bit, a stirrup, a spur, tobacco pipe fragments, a pierced silver coin, a gun hammer with the flint still in place, a sickle, a porringer handle, a chafing dish lid, a clearly dated window lead, postholes the size of a giant’s head, and much MUCH more!.

What will be discovered this year?
