Artifact of the Day
One of my favorite Port Tobacco artifacts is a small carved mammal bone dice that was uncovered in 2008 during the Centennial Hotel area excavations.
We haven't recovered many gaming artifacts at Port Tobacco. The only others that come to mind are the marbles that Magen began to analyze for us. We have many marbles from across the site and that date from the 19th and 20th centuries. More on those later.
