Description

Beach glass pieces (largest 35 mm) found on Jones Bay in one walk up and down the beach on this small bay. I find a batch like this every day -- I am gathering them for a friend to use as craft materials in a class she is leading on the island.

My guess would be that the majority of these pieces are from this century. Some are probably from the second half of the 20th century. I think they are mostly fragments of Carib beer bottles and Ting grapefruit-drink bottles (both green).

There may be a few older pieces too.

The pottery shard (part of an earthenware jug handle) in the upper left-hand corner is probably from the late 19th century.

Description from Wikipedia

Homo sapiens (Latin: "wise man") is the scientific name for the human species. Homo is the human genus, which also includes Neanderthals and many other extinct species of hominid; H. sapiens is the only surviving species of the genus Homo. Modern humans are the subspecies Homo sapiens sapiens, which differentiates them from what has been argued to be their direct ancestor, Homo sapiens idaltu.
