Come view the artifacts recovered from the five intact privies (outhouses) excavated from Charlestown’s City Square Archaeological District. Dating from the 17th and 18th centuries, these intact deposits provide incredible information about the Three Cranes Tavern, the cultural center of Charlestown. Artifacts include plates, food remains, bottles, and a large collection of redware vessels made in Charlestown by Grace Parker and the Parker-Harris Pottery.
