Colonial-era artifacts from the World Trade Center site

I saw this display last week at the 9-11 Museum, which is part of the World Trade Center site in NYC. These artifacts were found by forensic anthropologists who were searching “near the World Trade Center site” for remains of 9-11 victims, according to museum signage. The colonial-era artifacts are reminers that “much of lower Manhattan was built atop a landfill,” the museum sign says. Imagine what the world looked like to the eyes of those who last saw these items before they were unearthed in 2006.
