On February 15, 2019 at 12:30 pm, Curator Sarah Stroud Clarke discusses a most important archaelogical discovery at Drayton Hall and the related artifacts in the Drayton Hall Collections; Colonoware.
Recovered archaeologically from the Drayton Hall site are large amounts of Colonoware, a Native American and enslaved low-fired type of ceramic. These remarkable finds date, in some cases, to before the building of Drayton Hall and enlighten on the pre-Drayton period and the work of enslaved persons at Drayton Hall in the Drayton years. They are remarkable examples of early American ceramics.
