Although a little disappointed that weather drove us from the field today, there was acceptance. First of all, it is nasty and damp outside and, secondly, there is no lack of lab work! Well take a look at what our excellent volunteer, Chris H. found while picking the window screen fraction from water processing…..
It is a small glass bead!!! The bead was found from the presumed, shallow, builder’s trench of the Meat House at Ash Grove Historic Site. CART did some work there recently to assist with the stabilization of the over 200 year old structure. Ash Grove was a Fairfax Family property. The manor house currently there dates to about 1790. One of the questions our work hopes to answer is whether the meat house dates to this period of site development.
