Broken windowpane

A broken windowpane found in the Mansion House midden.
The presence of this glass in the Kirke house midden indicates the upper-class nature of the dwelling. What appears to be a scratched inscription near the center is indecipherable. The numbers along the edges of the glass were place there by the Ferryland archaeology team for the purpose of cataloguing and documenting the artifact.
