Durn tootin' When history is unwritten, call an archaeologist
Not all history is written. In fact, when it comes to the everyday life of ordinary people, much history is unrecorded. Unless you have a shovel.

Digging a few feet in places like Morrisville, Falls, Bristol and the Makefields, it is almost certain you will find traces of what the average person was up to a hundred or a thousand years ago.

Throughout the Delaware Valley, it is not uncommon to find tankards, wine bottles and pipes that are 200 years old.
