Artifacts Currently On Display in the Maison

This clay pot was a general purpose house utensil. It was used any time between 1740 and 1900. It is called ‘Heuvanne’ because it was made in Heuvanne, France. The shape of this vessel, a shallow bowl, was very useful for washing. This specific artifact was recovered from an area just near the kitchen of House Area C in the Slave Village. Its presence indicates that the residents continued to furnish their houses from markets in Martinique.
