A Holiday Celebration on the Alley

We had a great time at Deck the Alley yesterday evening! During the event hundreds of visitors came to the Alley to revel in the splendor of the historic homes and partake in some holiday cheer. Guests also had the opportunity to view a few of the newly cleaned artifacts recovered from the excavations this past summer. Artifacts we had on display included a gilt and polychrome transfer printed teacup, a fragment of a brass drawing compass, lice combs, and a glass ink bottle. Despite the chilly weather, we had a blast talking to visitors about the excavations and showcasing the artifacts!

In addition to the archaeology display, the evening included music from carolers and readings of  holiday classics such as Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.

Deck the Alley was the perfect way to kick off the Holiday Season!
