The current excavation of the Mead’s Tavern porch area is wrapping up. Next up is recording, analyzing, and conserving artifacts. Recent finds include “a huge assemblage of 18th-century artifacts the likes of which we haven't seen at the tavern up to this point,” according to Randy Lichtenberger. He says “the number and variety of artifacts is stunning.” These include shards of decorated stemware, two gun flints, numerous brass buttons, gaming pieces, decorated smoking pipe fragments with maker's marks, wine bottle glass, a stone marble, a brass thimble, and a large number of ceramic sherds of various types. Stay tuned for updates as these and other artifacts are examined and verified. #makehistoryLU Liberty University Department of History JerryLamon Falwell
