Lab Work

Over the last two days at the MHT lab we have been able to finish washing all of the artifacts collected to date. We have also bagged half of the artifacts! Thanks to the hard work of staff and our volunteers we are well on our way to analyzing all of the artifacts. Next week we will be finishing the bagging and start to catalog all of the artifacts.

The process of bagging artifacts is an easy one: separate the artifacts by type (ceramics, glass, nails, etc...), make tags for each bag, label the bags, perforate the bags and then put into storage boxes.

A huge thank you goes out to Maxine, Walt and John for their help over the past two days in this process.

While we were cleaning and bagging, John came across a very interesting and exciting piece of ceramic...which I'll tell you all about on Monday!
