Our artifact adventure this weeks us takes us to the village of Rogersville in Center Township.
Shown above is an unusually large mortal and Pestle that was excavated near Rogersville in the early 20th Century. This would have been used for grinding corn. While these items are not uncommon this one is simply due to it's size.
While there were no other diagnostic artifacts recorded with this discovery, we can likely attribute this to the Monongahela Culture that inhabited Greene County from around 1000AD t0 1635AD. The Monongahela were our first true agricultural residents.
Please come out and visit us, Tuesday through Saturday from 10AM to 3PM to see this treasure and the rest of our local archaeology collection!
