The archaeology of the old van (continued)

Excavation is now well and truly underway on the Ironbridge Archaeology van project at the University of Bristol. John Schofield reports that artefacts found underneath the floor covering "...include part of a confetti box, lots of screws, some raw plugs, wire, a crushed walnut, rolled quality street wrappers, a small sherd of seventeenth century slipware, some slag, a piece of coral and a Victorian threepenny bit..."! The latest report can be read in full on our contemporary archaeology blog.
