Ceramics from the two excavated sites were very different, Investigators recovered more highly decorated examples at Site 15Es89, compared to Site 15Es90.
Site 15Es89 also yielded a good sample of animal bones. The most common meat eaten by the residents was pig, followed by beef and chicken. They must have supplemented their diet with wild foods, too, as investigators also found squirrel and possibly groundhog and frog bones.
Overall, the archaeological evidence suggested that a family of higher socio-economic status, perhaps one of the head colliers, occupied Site 15Es89, while the family of a lower-status furnace worker or perhaps an ore miner lived at Site 15Es90.
