308) Archaeologist examines recovered items.
- March 14, 2007
Archaeologist Bob Gradie visits Squire's Tavern to examine ceramic shards, glass
and other items recovered from the grounds of the Squire's Tavern. Over the
last several years there have been digs at the Tavern which have recovered hundreds
of articles from nails, pipe stems and bowls, pieces of plates, dishes and cups
and other discarded items. The Barkhamsted Historical Society would like to
have this material analyzed so that we may glean any historical information possible
about the occupants living at the Squire's Tavern over the last two hundred years.
Walt Landgraf and archaeologist Bob Gradie inspect items recovered from the
grounds of the Squire's Tavern.

obtained from digs in the back yard of the Tavern.
