Best of Last Week: December 11-15, 2017

 

Dec W2

Obsolete, but not forgotten. Last week was dominated by objects and customs that would be relatively unknown in modern times. In Arizona, a firearm blank reveals the risky celebratory behavior of baseball fans. We also featured a second post about uranium glass, this time in the form of decorative Jadite from Michigan.

New discoveries from 19th century Canada also brought to light the temporary production of copper tokens and a hidden Chinese community in Victoria, BC. A similar instance of multiculturalism was also evident between traditional Iroquoian families and the French colonists. Common objects, like the stone pipe, were traded and/or re-purposed in L’Ancienne-Lorette, Quebec.
