Iron Key
This key has a broken shaft. It was recovered from a large pit south of the southeast bastion. The pit had been used as a trash pit, and was filled with cow bone fragments, and a large number of French and Indian pottery fragments. The key could have been for a door lock or a padlock. Its length is 6.82 cm. Object conservation by Jay C. Blaine.
