Archaeology in Progress
Colonial Williamsburg, June 2011
The new buildings interpret the property during the late 1770s as James Anderson's business began to grow and evolve due to efforts in the war. Anderson was appointed public armourer in 1776 and the changes in his business reflect his commitment to his new country. Currently, the nearby tin shop is also being excavated and will be reconstructed next, as well as some other small buildings on the property. In addition to the blog, you can read more about the new property here.
