Bottleglass fragment excavated at the British military camp on the Dyckman farm in Washington Heights, Manhattan; dark-green glass; body fragment.
This bottle fragment was excavated in 1916 by Charles A. Mauer on Payson Avenue near the corner of Academy Street, at the British camp on the Dyckman farm. The camp extended between Seaman and Payson Avenues and 204th Street in Washington Heights. The bottle was owned by a British or Hessian soldier, by a member of a soldier's family or by a civilian living in the camp, or was obtained from local residents. The bottle contained wine or liquor.
