Site: 18CV83 King’s Reach

Context: Unit 197, Stratum DD, Lot 313. Cellar fill. Diagnostic artifacts do not narrow down the date range of the cellar as compared to the whole site (c. 1689-1711), but its placement between floor joists indicates that is was added after a large nearby cellar had been filled. The feature fill should therefore date to the later years of occupation.

Context Date Range: c. 1690s-1711

Metal: Ferrous alloy

Length: 3.4” (8.7 cm)

Spine Thickness: 0.2” (5 mm)

Description:
Smoker’s companion missing its pinching tips, its spring mechanism, and the bottom portion of the grip where a tamper may have been.
