    Ivor Noël Hume

    In Something from the Cellar, an eclectic collection from the pages of Colonial Williamsburg, the popular history journal, Ivor Noël Hume ventures beyond Williamsburg to Jamestown in Virginia, the Fortress of Louisbourg in Canada, Pilmoth Plantation in Massachusetts, and beyond. He tells the stories of commonly excavated objects, such as wine bottles, chamber pots, and tobacco pipes, as well as the discovery of mastodon bones in Ohio and the restoration of Colonial Williamsburg's Historic Area. Noël Hume, James Michener once wrote, "is one of the world's most elegant speakers and writers on archeology. His record of successful work in this field is brilliant and America is fortunate that he has spent so much time digging up pure historical record."
