One of the more interesting artifacts recovered from the Baum’s Landing site (12C700) to date is this 19th century bone-handled knife. The knife is nearly complete, although broken into four pieces. The tip is rounded and there are two rivets holding the blade in the handle. Found in the refuse associated with a burned structure in Unit 3 at the site, the knife was clearly associated with early 19th century ceramics and can be assigned to the Baum occupation. Nearly 200 years ago, this knife was used by members of the Baum family and may have been a regular sight at the dinner table!
