A Fun Visit!

This past Sunday I had a visit from a great group, the Special Needs Scout Troop 364 from Belleville, NJ!  They stopped by Elfreth’s Alley in the morning, and I gave them a tour of the street and an overview of the archaeological investigations on the Alley.  We discussed a few of the basics of archaeology from stratigraphy to screening, and I showed them a bunch of the artifacts recovered this past field season.  They were a fun bunch and asked great questions such as whether the cobblestones along the alley were original (they are not!) and what the fire marks on the homes stood for (different fire insurance companies).  It was a pleasure talking to such a wonderful group!
