October is Archaeology Month! All month long, Cape Henry Lighthouse’s historic interpreters will be discussing the artifacts found during our 2013 archaeological dig and 2018-2019 dune restoration project. Items include glass from the original lighthouse keepers quarters dating from 1792, medicine bottles, tobacco pipes and bricks of the Rappahannock sandstone that built the tower of the lighthouse.
