Colonial-era artifacts found in New York City

Construction workers in Lower Manhattan have uncovered a collection of artifacts from the 18th century, including a gun flint, pipes and broken bottles.

“Any time you can actually see things lying in the ground or just coming out of the ground, that are in its natural state and are period artifacts, it’s just a wonderful experience,” says William Haas.

All of the artifacts pulled out of the ground are owned by the city and then the city puts them to good use by taking them into classrooms as teaching tools.

“We’re teaching New York City school children about past, present and future of New York City development,” says Loorya.
