Artifacts Recovered from the Battlefield Now on Display at the Bennington Museum
This month through August 25th, visitors to the Bennington Museum will be able to view a selection of artifacts recovered as part of archaeological surveys conducted at Bennington Battlefield. This display is the result of fieldwork conducted by professionally supervised avocational metal detectorists and trained archaeologists. Highlights include coins, buttons, musket balls, a cannon ball and "blooded" buckshot. In the Sloane Gallery visitors can also find a permanent display relating to the Battle of Bennington and view one of the captured trophy cannon. While there, why not check out the Battle Monument less than a mile away?
