These ceramics were excavated by Reginald P. Bolton, William L. Calver, and others before the formation of the Field Exploration Committee in 1918. They were excavated at Colonial sites in New York City, and were identified by Dr. Edwin A. Barber of the Pennsylvania Museum. The brown stonewares were probably made in Flanders, Belgium.
