Other Items Found at Montpelier

Many other items were found during my experience digging at Montpelier. Here are a few photos of some other typical finds. 

1.Bottom of Wine Glass

2. Jane holding the bottom of an iron pot

3. Various buttons
4. Pieces of Wine Bottles
 I found many nails and a huge chunk of a wine bottle, and the bottom of a wine glass. I couldn't help thinking: "Did Thomas Jefferson, Dolly Madison, or James Madison drink from this glass or bottle?"
5. Iron Nail
6. Coin From 1765

Unfortunately we did not find any coins, but previous excavations have found coins. On this coin you can clearly see the date: 1765.
