Apparently our archaeology unit paid off, because yesterday afternoon Elon proudly presented me with a number of "artifacts" they'd found while digging. We carefully cleaned them and then analyzed the finds. First, there was a heavily corroded piece of metal with a hole at one end (we're not sure what it is), a pottery shard, a fragment of brick or stone with the number "24" stamped on it and lastly a black cylinder of unknown origin (we tested it and it's not metal, but it seems too light to be stone). The kids had a lot of fun guessing where the items had come from and how old they might be, they're also quite eager to see if they'll find anything else!

These two were the favorites:
