When two halves come together!

When two halves come together!

Last week, the crew uncovered an abundance of porcelain, as well as other types pottery, and even fragments of a pipe, possibly made of bone.  The saying, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” truly applies in a case such as this one.

As the group seeks to put together pieces of the past in an effort to better paint a more realistic view, from a cultural standpoint, these mending moments can truly be considered a treasure trove.  With such an array of styles and patterns showing up at the dig site, the window into Fort Missoula’s past opens a bit more each day!
