Management Summary Report: Archaeological Test Excavations at the Read House and Gardens, New Castle, Delaware 7NC-E-105C
Department of Anthropology, University of Delaware, Newark, DE
This document summarizes archaeological finds in two test areas, one in an eighteenth-century alley bisecting the block north of the Read House, and the other in the filled cellar of the tavern-residence across the alley demolished in the 1860s. The theme of urban development is traced through late 19th century to contemporary urban utilities and the demolition of two colonial waterfront homes. A detailed full technical report is in preparation.
