The archeological investigation of the Armory Street within the Lower Armory Grounds provides us with a broader view of both the Native American and early Armory occupation periods and yields further data to better understand the early history and prehistory of Harpers Ferry. 

A number of interesting artifacts were collected during the course of the excavations.  Some interesting items included a cache of 75-100 three-piece, long- range rear sights for the U.S. Model 1855 rifle in a small deposit at the corner of the warehouse.  China plates commissioned by the railroad to commemorate the funding of the B&O Railroad were also discovered, plus several items from the Civil War era were found.
