29. Marshall Pottery Site

Even though many aspects of Portsmouth’s history are well documented, ongoing historic and archeological research continues to produce new information, thereby deepening our understanding and appreciation of Portsmouth and its neighborhoods. Interpretation must include investigating the role of women, enslaved and free people of African descent and immigrants in the community through time, as well as the development of artisan craft trades, economic growth and decline. Among the former proprietors and tenants of the Strawbery Banke, Marshall's Pottery Site holds many opportunities for this type of investigation.
