David Starbuck conducted a public ”mini-dig” and lecture on Saturday, September 28, at the site of the Temple Glassworks in Temple, NH.  This was the featured event at “Temple Glassworks Day,” sponsored by the Temple Historical Society, and honoring the oldest glass factory (1780-82) in the state of New Hampshire.   David and anthropology students are also digging on Tuesdays and Wednesdays behind historic Holmes House on the PSU campus.  This is the fourth fall they have dug on campus, finding pottery, buttons, nails, pipes and other evidence for what life was like in Plymouth, NH, before the formation of the university.  Our campus most definitely has a history!
