Still Life with Archaeological Site

Taken yesterday in southern Maryland. In the background, a tidal creek. In the excavation, the brick foundation of a nineteenth-century slave quarter. This site also has Indian occupation (the celt I posted a few weeks ago came from here) and a rather mysterious early eighteenth-century component.

Reverse view of the foundation. This was a frame building with glass windows and a brick chimney, so a pretty decent home by the standards of the time.
