This weekend my family took a trip to Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings State Park. We chased chickens, admired the swimming ducks, picked kumquats, and took a tour of the famous author's house. Near the end of the house tour I became fascinated by this jug, well designed for its intended use. For this week's WIIW, what kind of jug is this? What is it's function? Any guesses on when or where it was made?
|Our guide for the day.|
WHAT IS IT???
And because I'm a historical archaeologist I love me a privy...

Last WIIW answer: tobacco and horse urine! William Pier is crowned the Master of Mocha for 2012! I know we had some other guesses on Facebook but the post is no longer visible (guessing the word urine is a no no?) so know Master Pier there was some fierce competition, stay sharp my friend!
