2011 Excavations at Valley Forge

Me holding a piece of cream ware unearthed during the excavation.

Yesterday was my first day excavating at Valley Forge for the 2011 field season.  We’re working near Washington’s Headquarters and the site is a feature related to a cabin Washington had built during his time at Valley Forge.  I spent the afternoon screening.  I found a several pieces of red ware, cream ware, nails, a jasper flake, and part of a pipe bowl.  The volunteers next to us found an silver spoon while screening.  It should be interesting to see what else comes out of this feature.
