Costume Jewelry- University of Evansville, IN

Costume Jewelry

Excerpt- Students excavate to learn more about residents of Tin City through material things people used and then discarded. Artifacts shed light on women, children and men who lived there. Some artifacts found over the years include a 1947 penny, part of a hard rubber pedal that may have belonged to a child’s tricycle, part of a white bow-shaped barrette, a white hoop earring, a broken piece of a letter bead, parts of costume jewelry and a blue and white marble.
