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.

"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.
