In the backyard of the 18th-century Clough House in the North End, archeologists unearthed relics from the neighborhood’s early days.
Archeologists found this cistern that may have been built by Ebenezer Clough, who helped build Old North Church.
The team found glass shards and a gun flint, possibly from the Revolutionary War.
Archeologists Rosemary Pinales and Scott McGaughey worked at a site undisturbed by centuries of nearby development.
“You never know what you’re going to find, and thousands of people are watching you do it,” Boston city archeologist Joseph Bagley said.
