Saloon Archaeology update

Last Friday we posted an item on Saloon archaeology from Virginia City, NV. Kelly Dixon was kind enough to forward the web address of a site that contains more background information: VIRGINIA CITY’S BOSTON SALOON. This is a funding prospectus from before excavations started, but it provides the backstory to the work. Especially interesting is the African American aspect, which ought to be of interest to many.
