Here is one archaeologist's distillation of twenty years experience as scholar and sleuth, in the field and in the museum. Part history, part memoir, part diggers handbook, part buyers guide, the richly illustrated Guide to artefacts of Colonial America ranges from bricks to buckles, beads to bayonets, chamber pots to drug pots, hinges, nails, candlesticks and bells. What emerges is thorough in historical method , illuminating in detail, and altogether indispensable for the professional restoration architect, the historian, the collector, the curious.
