 West Morris Mendham History Club Archaeological Dig with Sean McHugh, Wendy Miervaldis and Steve Santucci. The site is noted to have been constructed sometimes in the early 1750s as a tavern in Chester! The scene here is Sean taking the lead in directing students in digging the test pit for the builders trench. We look forward to heading back to the site in Spring. (Above left, left to right) Artifacts include yellowware, bottle glass and redware with manganese glaze.
