Artifacts Unearthed in a Midden.
South of the cobble street, immediately north of the Kirke house, a
deep midden revealed thousands of objects discarded during the
17th century. The upper layers of the midden have been most extensively
explored and have revealed the presence of a family of the
Ferryland gentry. This illustration shows a number of artifacts exposed
in a small portion of the midden.
