Archaeologists have uncovered more of the 1845 mikveh, or ritual bath, beneath the Lloyd Street Synagogue. These artifacts including the wine bottle seals were unearthed in the row home next to the mikveh during the excavation. Esther Doyle Read, lecturer at UMBC Ancient Studies Department, is the project archaeologist.
