Unearthing Virginia's History
The vast collection of artifacts unearthed at David and Mary Harrison’s family farm in Virginia, Flowerdew Hundred, is being carefully catalogued and conserved at Morven Farm, a historic property in Albemarle County given to U.Va. by businessman and philanthropist John W. Kluge.
The Flowerdew Hundred exhibition at the Mary and David Harrison Institute for American History, Literature, and Culture presents material evidence of Virginia's early inhabitants: Native American pottery sherds; arms and armor used to defend the new colony; refined, imported wares from Europe; and American-made goods, including items manufactured by African Americans.
