Remains Of Colonial Tavern Uncovered

Archaeologists say they have found the buried remains of a Colonial tavern near the site of a planned highway bridge outside of Easton. Household ceramics, tobacco pipes and bones from food were found, dating back to the early 1700s when a town named Dover occupied the area. State officials say archaeologists are excavating the site as part of the planning process for the replacement bridge on Route 331 over the Choptank River.
