A renovation project on one of the University of Georgia’s oldest buildings keeps turning up interesting artifacts.

While removing the interior in preparation for new walls and floors, workers also uncovered massive beams that date back nearly two centuries to 1832, when a new New College was completed to replace one that burned.

The real treasure so far is a small bowl, nearly intact and very rare, that dates back 500 years or so, said UGA archaeologist Erv Garrison.
