Summary

This poster presents an analysis of the glassware recovered as part of the 2015 and 2016 excavations of the Coal Heritage Archaeology Project at Tams, WV and Wyco, WV.  The goal of this study is to compare and contrast the glassware found at these sites across racial, ethnic, and class lines to determine what impact living in an isolating mining community had on various groups of people who lived in these communities of labor.  This sort of analysis will allows us to compare the consumer habits of these groups, and understand the unique racial and ethnic makeup that composed many of these communities.
