Digging Up Delaware's History
Archaeologists are digging for answers about who lived on Delaware farmland in the early 19th and 20th century.

So far, more than 25,000 artifacts have been unearthed in just one month's time.

"That's one of the neat things about this site. Every day there's something new that adds a little bit more to what we know," said archaeologist Kimberly Morrell.

Clay marbles tell something about the Middletown site, and so does the leg of a doll. Children once lived here in what is believed to be the entire brick foundation of a sharecropper's house built in the late 1800's.
