On Sunday November 21 Phil, Carol, Rich, Elsie, and Janice returned to help wash the remaining artifacts. They were joined by Barbara Kane and her grandson Brogan. It turned out to be another nice day.
This was CCAS' first time to organize a lab for washing artifacts. Several CCAS members provided the equipment needed -- wash pans, strainers, tooth brushes, paper clips, and cardboard flats.
Below are some of the artifacts washed the second Sunday. You should be able to find old coins, bone buttons, a jaw, a military button, a door knob, and pieces of a plate that mend. The leaves are recent. What else do you see?
