Exploring Delaware's Green roots in redware pottery

Archaeologists at the Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs recently received a donation of pottery fragments from a private donor.

The collection of fragments came from what’s known as the Green Pottery site - a historic site at a home on Main Street in Smyrna.

Paul Nasca is the curator of archaeology at the Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs - and he joins Delaware Public Media’s Kelli Steele to discuss the collection and Delaware’s roots in redware pottery.
