The 2017 excavations started on the Glenbow Town and Quarry project. This week we began our search for the bunkhouse at the Workers’ Quarters – a two story building which housed the single men working at the quarry. With the help of two amazing volunteers Monica Webster and Megan Trefry we strung our grid, grabbed our trowels and got to work! Some terrific artifacts were found this week including a bottle neck, tobacco tag, lots of nails and a even fork! We encourage you to come out and visit us sometime over the upcoming weeks at Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up to dig for the day while we continue our search next week for the bunkhouse.
