Spurs Added to Diagnostic Artifacts Website

The latest addition to the MAC Lab’s Diagnostic Artifacts in Maryland web site is an informative section on spurs. The Diagnostic Artifacts web site was created to assist professional archaeologists as well as the interested public to recognize significant types of artifacts found in Maryland. The information on spurs can be found in “Small Finds,” where the more miscellaneous of these types of artifacts, such as bodkins and smoker’s companions, are described in detail. Do you want to know what a bodkin is? Would you like information on religious artifacts? You’re in luck! Check out the information, diagrams, and illustrations at http://www.jefpat.org/diagnostic/Small%20Finds/index-Small%20Finds.htm
