Archaeologists always have to be flexible at #digmontpelier, in this unit we're digging around the root to try and find the pailing scar's. We do this so that we can both find the artifact in the unit, but also protect the plant life. #ilovedirt #thisplacematters #pailingscar #savethetrees #historicalarchaeology #jamesmadison #keeponrootingforhistory
Do you know what this is at first glance?

Part of the fun of cataloguing is trying to figure out what the heck things are.
The answer and historical context to follow tomorrow.

After a full day of errands, decided to clean up some of the cartridge cases from the last round of screening at Fort Douglas. Evolution of military arms in one bag....45-70 casing from 1884 (bottom left) to the 30-06 cases from 1918 (left middle) and 1907 (right). Also what likely happens to a 30-06 bullet when it hits steel plate dead on. .

More local history from Queanbeyan. View of the convent from the dining room of the place I'm house sitting. Benedict house was built in 1886 as a Catholic school for young ladies. It's a lovely building to be next to but also, if this was a horror film, it would definitely be haunted. 👻🏚

Back from another amazing week in the field recording mining sites and old homesteads. Feeling pretty lucky to have had great weather and an even better crew! #archaeology #fancyfieldwork #crmarchaeology #historicalarchaeology #gold #alaska
I visited a re-creation of the 1620 Pilgrim site that UMass-Boston archaeologists are excavating a few miles away. Here's the clay pitcher before it broke, fell to the dirt floor and produced tiny shards that were swept out of the house and eventually buried under hundreds of years of sediment. Finally, in 2017, a college undergrad picked the pieces out of a sifting screen. Surreal. Upcoming article in American Archaeology. #stilllife #ghostsofpilgrimspast #plimothplantation #plymouth400 #plymouth #plimoth #archaeology #historicalarchaeology #fiske #umassboston #1620

Happy Pride! Our final instalment in our artifact rainbow is this piece of purple ceramic with a stippled transfer print design. The feathery leaves were once part of a larger landscape scene.

UMass-Boston archaeologists spray excavated material over a screen to reveal artifacts. They're hoping to find evidence of Pilgrims along the Town Brook, as well as the original Plymouth shoreline; everyone is slathered in mud as a result.

Students in the Summer Field School of the #UMassAmherst Historical Archaeology Program help to uncover a flowerpot buried on the grounds of the Emily Dickinson Museum on Main Street. The excavation aims to help the archaeologists understand what life was like during Dickinson's lifetime, and to enhance the experience for visitors of the museum with a more authentic setting. #umass #amherst #archaeology #emilydickinson #summerfieldschool #historicalarchaeology

"The Blue Fortress", used by T.E. Lawrence as his base of operations during the Arab Revolt. Prior to Lawrence's tenancy, the castle was inhabited by the Romans, Ayyubids, and the Ottomans as a strategic stongpoint, guarding the only oasis for 12,000 square kilometers. 
One of the most fascinating things about the castle was it's massive stone doors (seen in the gate), each weighing several tons!

Here is the green artifact for our Pride rainbow! This large spoon eroded to a beautiful vivid shade of green, a sign of its high copper content.

Hi, I'm Tess and I go to smith college. Today is already off to an eventful start! The field school students rescued a cat and then attended a metal detecting demonstration. Now we are back in our units and ready to work! #digmontpelier #fieldschool2017 #historicalarchaeology

On a dig in Køge we found a row of small, wooden posts. Around and against them large pieces of peat were build up, maybe to protect the city from flooding from the nearby sea. Further analysis will hopefully bring us more knowledge about the type of wood and when the wood was chopped. #archaeology #arkæologi #archaeologie #arkeologi #byarkæologi #archäologie #archaeologia #historicalarchaeology #medievalarchaeology #køge
Shards & pipes. So far mostly 18th century redware. Though one piece of Maiolica hint some older structures.  #arkeologi #historicalarchaeology #archaeology #sormlandsarkeologi #attjobbasomarkeolog
The dig at the Aiken-Rhett House is being done in an effort to try to find evidence of siege lines dug by the British when they seized Charleston in 1780. Ground penetrating radar showed evidence of a trench running through the yard - so far the area has yielded a lot of brick and rubble and a few 19th and 20th century artifacts which may well be an indication that the siege lines are elsewhere. More digging to be done.... #theaccidentalpreservationist

Want a little dose? A small glass  ampoule from the 1910s-1920s found at Fort Douglas. Possibly for vaccines, painkillers, or another type of medicine. One is the smallest bottles I have found...almost looks off a doll tea set! .

A nice piece of manganese purple decorated Westerwald from last summer's Unity Court Tenement excavations.

Second year in a row we held a volunteer public archaeology event @fortdouglasmilitarymuseum in support of their Fort Douglas Day event. It was a great event and dozens of people stopped to learn, ask questions, and play in the dirt. This dirt came from what appears to be where the Army dumped their trash between the 1880s and 1910s. These artifacts continue to help us learn about the life of the soldiers that called this place home. You can see a sample of the artifacts in the second photo, but we got a 38th  Infantry button cover, tobacco pipes, cartridges and even a seashell. More to learn! Thanks to everyone who donated their time and passion today. .

There are two particularly interesting things about the manor at 300 Queen Street, home of Mayor of Melbourne John Thomas Smith and his family.
.
First, the house was Georgian in style and outdated in the Melbourne context. Commissioned by the Smiths in 1848,  the house gave the family the impression of heritage and being from ‘old money’, which they certainly weren’t. J.T. Smith was the son of convicts. The manor was one of very few Georgian buildings in Melbourne’s CBD.
.
Second, though grand, the building was poorly executed. The second floor extension was particularly shoddy. Like Smith’s chamberpot (see earlier post), the manor was cheap but sent the desired message. Ahh those delusions of grandeur!
