Summary

In the 1800s, Lindenwood University, located in St. Charles, Missouri previously offered secondary education primarily to women.  During this time, the university disposed of garbage from the college in a garbage dump behind the student residency where it was later burned. An excavation of the former garbage dump from provides an insight of the lifestyle of university students during the 1800s, including goods and products that the students used. The excavation and surface collections continue to reveal artifacts ranging from construction materials and schooling equipment to household goods, including a plentiful amount of glass. The glass artifact collection consists of glass bottles, jars, and fragments of glass of a variety of shapes, colors, and purposes.  This presentation exhibits an analysis specifically on the cut glass collected by archaeology majors from Lindenwood University.
