Cool Find from Unit 137

Yesterday afternoon our field crew noticed a collection of jars within the northern portion of Unit 137. After being mapped, photographed, and documented, the jars were collected and taken to the UWF archaeology lab for processing. This exposed section of the Simpson house basement may have been used for canning or storage purposes at the time that the house burnt down.

Below are some pictures of the most interesting jars that we recovered.
