    Schoolyard site updates

    Weather conditions have been horrible for digging lately, with temps well below freezing since Christmas, but the last 2 days have delivered a quick thaw and the chance to locate some finds. Nothing spectacular, but a start for 2018. I hope to post more images from the site's finds on this thread.

    Returned to the site and the hole has been back-filled. On to the next.

    Well they moved some more dirt around to instal a drainage system, so I went back in the hole. Pulled an 8-sided blob and a strap-side small.

    The blob is embossed: "Moroney & Connor Weissbeer, 819 Carpenter St., Philada"

    Nice find! I love it when construction workers do all the digging and expose stuff.

    Yeah, and there's a lot of fill from the 1870s and 80s in my area, so there are usually some good finds. This same site produced a real nice large olive oil with applied seal, a mucilage, and a clay beer.
