The Dig

The Dig

With the help of the UConn archeology department and Friends of the State Archeologist (FOSA) the Ellington Historical Society held a youth event to dig for artifacts in an area behind the Nellie McKnight Museum in an area where there was once an ell off the back of the house. Old photos of the house were examined, ground searching radar looked for anomolies, and finally the youngsters dug for treasure!
