Site 15

Site 15 consists of a moderately dense scatter of nail manufacturing artifacts and a very light density of domestic artifacts measuring 60 feet east/west by 130 feet north/south. One piece of porcelain and one piece of dark gren bottle glass coupled with hand wrought nails indicate that the site was occupied during Jefferson's lifetime. The great majority of recovered artifacts (94%) relate to nail manufacturing (wrought nails, nailrod, slag, charcoal and coal). Given this evidence, the site represents a nailery whose operation may have been concurrent with the opeartion on Mulberry Row.
