Treasure hunter Lary Salo got the opportunity to search at the historic Hannah Jumper house to uncover any artifacts that had been there for centuries. He had permission of the property owner to hunt there. After hunting for awhile, he found brass buttons of different sizes, a door handle, two clay pipe stems, a shoe buckle, pottery shards and coins dating from the late 1700s to early 1800s! As of right now, they are working out whether the items found belong to the Jumper house. Salo said on the hobby, “I’ve been metal detecting for the past 35 years or so. My former middle school teacher was talking to the owner, and he secured permission for me to metal detect.” According to the article, the house was built in 1740 and still stands at 35 Mount Pleasant St. today.

One of the things the ancient Minoan culture is famous for is their vibrant frescoes and pottery designs. As a quick history lesson, the Minoans lived on modern day Crete during the Bronze Age. This was about 2,000-1,500 BCE. Their love of their way of life was reflected in their art. They especially had a love of the sea and nature. You can see flowing, naturalistic designs that represent the timeless beauty of the natural world. Their art was notable because it was not a common type during that time. As a seafaring culture in the Aegean, the Minoans were constantly being exposed to different cultures, materials and knowledge. They used all of those in their artwork. For example, in some pieces, you could see differences in social and political status reflected in the art. Read on the various stages of development and more! Click source below. The Minoans were just one of many, amazing ancient cultures! Stay tuned for other blog posts featuring others!
