Ishakpasha Palace (Doğubayazit/Turkey)
Doğu Anadolunun yaşayan en muhteşem tarihi eseri bence. Sanat tarihçileri ne kadar arastirdi bilemiyorum ama inşasi 100 yil süren Ishakpasa Sarayi'nin kendi alaninda dunyada tek oldugunu düşunüyorum. 🍁🍁Ahmedi Hani Turbesinden Ishak Paşa Sarayinin gorunumu📷📷📷 @quechuatravel Mayis/2013

Another great find that was uncovered at our site is this Minié ball bullet. Very popular during the mid 1800’s, and fits right into the timeframe of the current layer we are excavating. #presidioarchlab #presidiopics #presidiosf #historicalarchaeology #civilwar #militaryhistory
Plusieurs encriers complets en grès, comme celui-ci, ont été retrouvés cet été ! 🤗
.
Le grès, de par son opacité, sa dureté et son imperméabilité, était un type céramique de choix pour les encriers, bouteilles de bière et autres récipients du genre. Et heureusement pour nous, les objets en grès se conserve généralement très bien ! 😊

Some photos of historic New D’Hanis, which was built along the railroad tracks after the construction of the Southern Pacific Railroad in the 1880s. Old D’Hanis, where Alsatian and German migrants originally settled, is located about a mile to the southeast. If you look closely, you can see the impact of one of the major floods the town had during the early 20th century.

Happy Friday, grammers! Check out this wine bottle base we pulled out of a colonial era drainage ditch this morning 🍇

Fort Road in the east coast of Singapore is named after an actual fort. Fort Tanjong Katong was built as an eastern defence for the port of Singapore at the turn of the 20th century,  but it was eventually decommissioned due to changing technologies: the cannons that it was built to house became obsolete. The fort was demolished, and it faded into memory. In 2005, there was an effort to excavate the foundations of the fort, which uncovered several bastions and the general shape of the walls. The remains have since been rebutted for protection. #singapore #fort #fortroad #forttanjongkatong #katongfort #defence #bastion #colonial #eastcoast #historicalarchaeology #southeastasianarchaeology

The bottles are from the backyard of the Royal Hotel in Bendigo. Slightly curious in that they look exactly like your average wine bottle but are quite a bit smaller. Any ideas?

It’s always a treat when all the pieces fit back together! This plate features a blue under the glaze transfer print with painted yellow and orange decoration. Manufactured by W. T.

Archaeological excavations began at BT/FA in the 1950s - first with Citadel Professor of History (and Wilmington native) Dr. E. Lawrence Lee, and then by Dr. Stanley South. South, who would become known as the “Father of Historical Archaeology” spent ten years excavating the ruins of Brunswick and parts of Fort Anderson. He would go on to do groundbreaking archaeological work (pun intended) at sites such as Charles Towne Landing, Bethabara, and Santa Elena. 
Today, archaeological field schools are held on an annual basis, and the site boasts one of the largest archaeological collections in the state of North Carolina. .

Mmmm sometimes the lab makes me hungry. We often find oyster shells in Harvard Yard (and most of them are even more degraded than this one). It's difficult to say whether this one ended as oyster stew, "escoloped" oysters, oyster patties, or downed raw on the half shell (my favorite) (PM# 987-22-10/110047). #digharvard #harvard #historicalarchaeology #archaeology #museum #publicarchaeology #oysters  #seafood #historicalfood #yum

***A mystery waiting to be solved ***
Hitler’s suicide, Russians’ take-over and later West German government ‘s move of writing into law that production of any items symbolizing (glorifying) the Nazi regime would be illegal. Who made this commemorative coin then? [This coin was a gift from a family I interviewed for my doctoral dissertation/PhD thesis.]

This is a photo of downtown D’Hanis, where I’ll also be working this summer and in the fall. This was taken in 2017 during the reconstruction and renovation of the the two buildings on the right, after severe damage from a 2015 tornado. This year, there is a great little cafe on the first story of the Rothe & Koch building and plans for a D’Hanis museum upstairs.

Hi all! For those of you who haven’t been to Castroville, TX, this photo captures one of the first sights you’ll see in Castroville as you drive west on Route 90, out of San Antonio. 
If the Steinbach House looks Alsatian, that’s because it actually is. Built in the 17th century in Alsace, it was dismantled after three centuries and moved piece by piece to Texas, where it was rebuilt along Rt. 90 between 1998 and 2002. Now, it lets visitors know that they’ve arrived in “The Little Alsace of Texas.” About 160 years prior, ancestors of many of the current residents of Castroville (and D’Hanis, about 30 miles further) made the same trip. That’s, in part, where this story starts (though, of course, it goes back much further, in both Texas and Europe, as stories do). You can read more about the Steinbach House at steinbachhaus.com.

Adam’s pick for “Artefact of the week” is a reassembled plate sporting an “Opaque de Sarraguemines” maker’s mark. Sarreguemines is a small commune located in North-Eastern France. This specific mark was stamped on items produced between 1875-1900. This plate would have been imported from the Métropole through supply ships and trade to the archipelago, and used mainly as a tableware. This particular maker’s mark has been found multiple times throughout this year’s excavation! Fun-Fact: In 1800, Napoleon was a major customer of this ceramic maker! #artefactoftheweek #week4 #artefact #artifact #materialculture #ceramics #19thcentury #archaeologistsintraining #archeospm #fieldschool #archaeology #munarchaeology #archeologie #historicalarchaeology #archeologiehistorique #archaeologylife #saintpierreetmiquelon #lheuredelest #spmexception

Julieanne’s pick for “Artefact of the week” is an almost complete perfume bottle! With [DEPOSE] on the front and [R6 2222] on the base, it would suggest the bottle mold is patented in a French speaking country. The seam on the side indicates it was molded in two parts, suggesting it was produced in the 19th or 20th century. While the exact maker of the bottle has yet to be uncovered, it would stand to reason that artefacts such as this could indicate the presence of families at the site.

Liam A’s pick for “Artefact of the week” is a Normandy (Bessin-Cotentin to be specific) stoneware rim sherd. This stoneware was produced in Normandy, France, and can be distinguished by its red-brown paste colour. The Normandy region began producing these stonewares in the 13th century. They were made for food and liquid storage, specifically dairy storage. These stonewares are associated with items traded in and imported to Saint-Pierre et Miquelon and would have been reused later as general storage jars and jugs. This stoneware is found abundantly in French fishery contexts of the North Atlantic! #artefactoftheweek #week4 #artefact #artifact #materialculture #ceramics #18thcentury #19thcentury #archaeologistsintraining #archeospm #fieldschool #archaeology #munarchaeology #archeologie #historicalarchaeology #archeologiehistorique #archaeologylife #saintpierreetmiquelon #lheuredelest #spmexception

Carnegie Brick and Pottery Company brick produced in San Joaquin County California, and dumped on the edges of a trestle abutment along the Transcontinental Railroad in Box Elder County,  Utah. This is a firebrick, made with special clays to withstand the extreme heat of kilns, boilers, and fireboxes. This dates between 1903 and 1911, according to the mark and some wire scrapes. Also check out @archaeofile who documented a more commercial form of this brick too!

Also check out @archaeofile who documented a more commercial form of this brick too! . . #brick  #utaharchaeology  #history  #historicalarchaeology  #california  #historical  @usartifacts #artifacts 
Archaeology is a grave matter... we have found 8 graves dating to the 1600s! They all seem to be rather small (smaller than me!) so they're likely children/youths! [The first pic has the plow scars removed.]

• love these late-19th/early-20th century buckles and bone buttons. these were worn by descendants of New Orleans’s free population of color, residents of the Tremé that sold lumber and lived a few blocks from the carondelet canal •

• special grade sewing machine oil bottle, c. 1890s • sperm whale oil is light and was used to lubricate fine machinery from the colonial period into the 20th century. this bottle of sperm oil was used to maintain a home sewing machine that likely saw the repair of both finery and everyday work clothing.

Mystery artifact time! This one stumped us (PM 987-22-10/110916). This worked stone artifact was found during the Old Yard project in Harvard yard, intermixed with 18th and 19th century artifacts. It tapers and has 4 notches intentionally taken out of the edge. Any hints? #digharvard #harvard #historicalarchaeology #archaeology #museum #publicarchaeology #lithics #stonetools #mysteryartifact
Exciting find from the grove this afternoon! This sherd is a piece of dry bodied red stoneware. This is an English mimicry of Chinese tea wares. Similar ceramics were uncovered in the grove last season. What type of design do you see?

• City Bottling Co. soda bottle, late 19th century • City Bottling Co. was in operation on South Liberty Street until the first decade of the 20th century. This bottle comes from a family working and living in Tremé’s late nineteenth-century wood yards.

Big paintings for big moments: Washington and Rochambeau (with LaFayette peaking out behind G-man) at the Siege of Yorktown; and of course me fangirling as calmly as I can in a museum😥 Can't get enough of Philly, and can't wait to go back someday, it was a truly "revolutionary"trip😎

Meet Leslie and William DeCaporale, two of our #digmontpelier expedition members this week. They found a black transferprint ceramic while digging in their unit this morning! What a way to celebrate 40 years of marriage! #digmontpelier #diggingisfun #transferprint #ceramics #wedding #marriage #family #archaeolgy #historicalarchaeology #publicarchaeology
Visited the @alfredbowerslab @uidaho to check out the Asian American Comparative Collection, a collection of artifacts associated with Chinese Americans and Japanese Americans. It is the only one of its kind in the world.

How’s this for an awesome Tuesday find?! A piece of a salt-glazed Westerwald stoneware tankard exhibiting a handle and top rim. Unearthed from a 17th century drainage ditch. It was directly underneath of a monster Black Walnut root that grew into the ditch.

Deux beaux fragments de yellow ware 💛 .
On voit une partie du décor de type mocha, c'est-à-dire un motif de branche ou de mousse végétale, ici en bleu.
.
Ce décor tient son nom aux similitudes qu'il présente avec la pierre agate mousseuse dont la surface est coupée et polie. On retrouve cette pierre principalement à Mocha, dans le nord-est des États-Unis.
.
Ces décors seraient apparus au tournant du XIXe chez les fabricants anglais, mais auraient été adoptés par les fabriques canadiennes après 1870. 😊

A survey map of New Smyrna from 1850 superimposed over a modern street map. What kind of technology do you think surveyors used in the 1850s? Is it anything like what we use today? .

Waiting to be discovered is a wildness which is smaller, darker, more complex and interesting, not a place to stride over but a force requiring constant negotiation. A lifelong negotiation at that: to give birth is to be in a wild place, so is to struggle with pneumonia. If you can look down a gryke, you can look down a microscope, and marvel at the wildness of the processes of our own bodies, the wildness of disease. There is Ben Nevis, there is smallpox. One wild worth protecting, one worth eradicating. And in the end, we won’t have to go out to find the wild, because the wild will come for us. Then, I guess, someone will scatter our ashes on a mountaintop, and someone else will complain.

Sarah’s pick for “Artefact of the Week” is a Westerwald rim sherd! This grey and blue salt-glazed stoneware was manufactured from the 16th-18th century in a region of Germany near the Rhine referred to as “Westerwald.” Given the shape of this particular sherd, the object was most likely a mug or tankard. What a nice 18th century find! #artefactoftheweek #week3 #artefact #artifact #materialculture #ceramics #18thcentury #archaeologistsintraining #archeospm #fieldschool #archaeology #munarchaeology #archeologie #historicalarchaeology #archeologiehistorique #archaeologylife #saintpierreetmiquelon #lheuredelest #spmexception
