Brick foundations of what may have been a slave quarters were found beside the Wren Building at the College of William and Mary.

The discovery was “a little bit of a miracle,” Louise Kale, executive director of the College’s Historic Campus, told the The Washington Post.

So far no records have surfaced about the original purpose of the building. The 16 by 20 foot foundation was uncovered during archaeological digs conducted in preparation for a sidewalk widening.

Further excavations are planned.
