 Blacking Bottle

BjCj-27 site: Blacking Bottle

In 1998, a small crew carried out the first archaeological survey in the Brownspriggs Grant area of Antigonish and Guysborough counties. They identified a number of Black Loyalist descendant sites, and found this blacking bottle made of English brown stoneware on site BjCj-27. Liquid blacking was used to treat boots, harnesses, and other leather goods.
