Readers will find an advertisement in the print edition of The Advertiser for volunteers and visitors to come to the excavations at the site of the first stoneware production site in the Edgefield District. The date for the excavation is October 10-27, 2014. This excavation is related to the on-going University of Illinois research, which took place in 2011 and 2013. The advertisement opens the door for local and out-of-towners to join in.
One of the highlights of the 18–day period of excavation will be a public seminar on Edgefield Pottery given by Justin Guy on October 19. A second public seminar will be on October 26, led by Nicole Isenbarger. For more details see the ad on page 1, section 2.
