  • Recovered Civil War Era Bayonet - Electrolytic Conservation of Iron Artifacts (2009)
    DOCUMENT Full-Text Fort Lee Regional Archaeological Curation Facility.

Without out knowing the exact positioning within the layers it can not be determined if the artifact was in its original place of deposition or it was brought in as part of the fill. The area of...
