I am in the third week of the online Archaeology of Portus course, and fascinated once more at what elements of detritus from ages past can tell us about the folks then. And coupled with our ongoing downsizing exercise, I look around me and wonder what will be salvaged, in what state, and whether it will enlighten the examiners.
Last week on the course I learned that maker's stamps on bricks in Roman times are of vital importance now to archaeologists (image above from here). I suspect that the Victorian times with their pride in stamping drain covers etc. will be a much more fertile source than today's plastic and electronic markers.
