Richmond Parking Lot May Reveal Clues to Richmond's Slave Era

In Richmond there is a new archaeological dig under a parking lot. What is hoped to be discovered is clues to the slave era past.

The Daily News is reporting:

"The dig beneath an elevated section of Interstate 95 is seeking remnants of Lumpkin's Jail, named after a slave trader. The building later became a school for freed blacks."

This story reminds me of my bottle digging days, back in the sixties. Prime sites were old farm trash sites that can still be found. Here you can find an article on how to find antique bottles.
