Lowell’s Irish Past Cover View

Posted in Editorial, Product by harkinsphoto on June 4, 2013



Artifacts from everyday life of the 19th century unearthed on the grounds of St. Patrick’s Church Lowell MA by UMASS Lowell students archaeological dig.

Items included here of rosary beads, clay marbles, cattle bones, an iron nail, a bowl of a clay pipe, potty shards and oyster shells.

I was particularly taken with the close-up of the rosary and could only wonder of a possible relative of mine dropping it on the grounds so many years ago.

Look for these views on the cover of this months issue of Merrimack Valley Magazine with the cover story by  Aine Greaney.
