Triphena Bowl & Archaeology at the Site of the Museum of American Revolution
The 2014 archaeological excavation prior to construction at the site of the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia yielded treasures in the trash. Unearthed privy pits provided remarkable finds from a mid-18th-century tavern to relics from a button factory dating to the early 20th century. Urban archaeologist Rebecca Yamin documents her findings and the stories from the nearly 82,000 pieces of artifacts found during the dig in Archaeology at the Site of the Museum of the American Revolution.
Pieces of the “Success to the Triphena” punch bowl were found in a privy pit from what was an unlicensed tavern on Carter’s Alley. The Tryphena was a merchant ship that sailed across the Atlantic in 1765 from Philadelphia carrying a message asking England to reconsider the Stamp Act. Our Triphena Bowl is a 1:1 scale ceramic reproduction of a Museum Collection object. Dimensions: 8.75" x 3.5".
Paired together, the reproduction Triphena Bowl and Archaeology at the Site of the Museum of the American Revolution by Rebecca Yamin make the perfect gift for the Revolutionary history buffs in your life.
