Digging up the past

An unprecedented excavation site in Amsterdam revealed hundreds of years of artifacts dating from the early 1300’s to present day.  The site of a new metro line which saw a portion of the Amstel River being drained,  uncovered over 17,000 objects which have been photographed and catalogued by archaelogists.  From a boat hook circa 1300 – 1625,  to 21st century items such as ID cards, coins, dentures and yes, even lost marbles, all can be viewed in the Below the Surface website here.
