A well described by Captain John Smith was found in the bottom of a cellar that was a part of the storehouse complex. Nearly 15 feet deep, the feature held about 600,000 artifacts. Some of the highlights included a slate writing tablet with drawings and words etched into it, locally made tobacco pipe stems with the names of important Englishmen printed into the clay, and numerous bones from dogs and horses that had been butchered during the starving time winter of 1609-10.
