Mechanised excavation of two trenches yielded 763 artifacts in the following categories: transportation; architectural object; communication; lighting; clothing; recreation; food processing; detritus; glass and ceramic ornamental and storage containers; dinnerware; faunal remains. Stratigraphy is detailed, and appendices include an artifact catalogue.
