Wampum string in situ

Paul Huey states “At Fort Orange we uncovered a string of wampum beads in situ in a deposit dating ca. 1664.  The number of beads on the string was the number of beads equal to 1 stuiver in 1664.  The value kept changing because of built-in inflation.  An image of the in situ wampum string uncovered at Fort Orange is seen here.”
