105) Squires Tavern work party - October 17, 2001
The "big dig" starts! Before the ground near the foundation at the back of the Tavern is disturbed for foundation repairs, Fred Warner conducts an archaeological dig with the help of volunteers. The goal is to recover any artifacts that could provide evidence for how the occupants lived. Fred maps out several five foot squares and digging begins. The soil is screened and any artifact found is cataloged. Numerous pieces of pottery, glass and metal are recovered including old pipe stems and pipe bowls. Besides the dig, more work is done inside the Tavern to expose fireplaces.
