These three are examples of the large collection of artifacts Fred Luce and his family found at the Haverhill Trotting Park, right in his backyard where they had a commercial plant nursery. Overall, there were at least 800 artifacts found there.
One "arrowhead" from the Philbrick-Day Collection. The enclosed note states that it was found on the Hannah Duston Farm in a post hole. This is carefully boxed and labelled, indicating that it was considered a significant find for the collection.
Two gorgets from Groveland Camps. Archeologists are not certain of the purpose of gorgets, but based on the size and shape, along with the drill holes, these were likely worn around the neck, perhaps ceremonial or to signify status.
Two steatite (soapstone) fragments from the Parker Collection at Groveland Camps. Steatite, or soapstone, was carved into bowls or other objects.
4320 is from the Day-Philbrick Collection. Location Unknown.
