A curious piece of glass ..... #artifactoftheday  #ohioarchaeology
The #artifactoftheday purple stipple floral whitewater. This likely dates between 1845 and 1850.

This bottle fragment was just uncovered in an area we suspect was a rubbish dump behind the men's dorm. The glass looks hand blown and we suspect it's a whiskey bottle. Someone was breaking the rules..... #artifactoftheday  #ohioarchaeology  #historicalarchaeology

We have an exciting find from unit JJ54, uncovered at the edge of an ash lens. Can you identify it?

The Donaldson House and property. This was the home of Thomas Donaldson, a highly active #abolishionist who helped publish the #antislavery newspaper, The Philanthropist. Donaldson was instrumental in the #undergroundrailroad locally.

A small key was found in JJ55. It looks like it could be for a small chest or cabinet. What do you think?

Patrick uncovered a 0.38 caliber (?) rim fire shell casing in unit JJ54. Any idea what this might have been used for?

Clams or freshwater mussels from the Ohio River were found in unit JJ54, 20 centimeters below the surface. These were likely used as food by the boys and men occupying the men's dorm at the Academy. We have also found some clams that were used to make buttons.

So many archival papers and documents associated with Daniel Parker and his descendants to study. What do you make of this contraption's design? Any guess what it could have been? #archivalresearch #parkeracademy #mysterymachine

Lucky for us, our work won't solely center on the excavations and #historicalarchaeology. We have permission to study boxes and boxes of archival material on the Parker family and the Academy. We cannot wait to learn about the Parkers' commitment to #racialintegratededucation, their connections to other #abolitionists and gleam hints about their participation with the #undergroundrailroad. #archivalresearch #socialjustice #19thcentury #ohiohistory #ohioarchaeology
@nkuedu public historian Dr. Brian Hackett is giving upper level and grad students some helpful tips on #archivalresearch. #historicalresearch
