JACKSONVILLE Emil Britt wasnt hitting the ..., 23 Sept 2015 [cached]
JACKSONVILLE Emil Britt wasnt hitting the bottle in a workshop attached to the family barn that was unearthed in 2014, archaeologist Chelsea Rose has concluded after finding bottle remains. At first I thought maybe he was drinking in the barn, said Rose. Closer examination found that the tops had been broken off and the bottoms scored before being cut away. The altered bottles likely served as seedling covers for young sprouts. The discovery shows that Emil Britt continued the experimentation in agriculture that his father, Peter, had started in the 1800s, says Rose.
The amount of preserved material surprised Rose, a research archaeologist at Southern Oregon University.
A backhoe operator carefully pulled back layers, said Rose, allowing volunteers and students to plot and retrieve artifacts. It was not a typical excavation, said Rose.
They both were innovators, said Rose. What makes the site particularly interesting is we know so much about the Britt family and their contributions to the region. Only representative samples of the 917 construction material artifacts found were retained. Other items fall into categories related to function such as commerce, personal, domestic, hardware, food storage, electrical, heating and lighting, furnishings and a category called "indefinite," which was the largest group with 517 artifacts, including many containers. People going up the new Britt ramp on the south side of the festival grounds are on top of the covered-over workshop. The majority of the barn likely remains underground immediately to the west and north with whatever artifacts it may contain. Excavation would probably only happen, Rose said, if a construction project takes place in that area, which is adjacent to the back of the Britt main stage.

"We are confident it is the cabin site - we've found evidence that clicked everything into place," said Chelsea Rose, staff archaeologist at Southern Oregon University's Laboratory of Anthropology who led last month's dig.
The researchers, including a group of SOU archaeology students and Southern Oregon Historical Society volunteers, were tipped by the presence of two old garbage sites which would not have been placed so close to the house, Rose said.
"The middens (refuse sites) were in weird spots from where the house stood," she said, adding that the test digs confirmed they had located the old cabin site.
Like the one from the Britt cabin, the pipe from the Jennison cabin depicts a man with a long beard and tall fur hat, Rose said. The pipes appear to have been mass produced, she added.
The work by Rose and her crew was essential in achieving that goal, he said, adding that future archaeological projects depend on available funding.
The archaeologists and SOHS volunteers are working with the city to discover everything they can about Jacksonville's most famous resident, Rose said.
In addition to the old pipe bowl, other artifacts found on the site included dishes, parts of ceramic dolls, countless square nails and bones from wild animals that had been butchered, Rose said.
"We found a lot of elk and deer bones - wild game bones," she said. "In the early 1850s, there wouldn't have been much development."

"It's really cool that Carol made a consistent amount of effort to contact people and have an archaeologist work with her and find how best to approach this," said Chelsea Rose, who has worked on archaeology projects in Jacksonville.
Rose volunteered her services and has found Southern Oregon University students who will help catalog the pieces.
"It's right behind First Street and Rich Gulch, where a lot of the first mining was going on," said Rose.
Those can be analyzed at the University of Oregon, Rose explained.
"We can find out if it's pork, beef or lamb and what kind of cut they were eating, which will reveal how they were doing financially," said Rose. "In tighter years, you'd expect more neck roasts and stew cuts."
Rose says artifacts from Knapp's home now number in the upper hundreds and they will be taken to an SOU archaeology laboratory.
Rose, a graduate student in anthropology at Sonoma State University, plans to write an article on the discoveries and the house's history.
