Virginia Transportation Department Uncovers a Historical Find

VDOT is reporting:

JAMES CITY COUNTY, Va.—Hand-wrought nails, stemmed glassware and ceramics dating back to 1750-1780 are among items discovered by Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) archaeologists as part of a routine archaeological investigation of the area where the replacement of the Judith Stewart Dresser Memorial Bridge will be constructed over the Chickahominy River later this year. Archaeologists are excavating this site, which may provide new insights to eighteenth century life in colonial America.
