    Flooded creek finds

    I'm in Nashville right now and after the flooding 6 feet of soil got washed away in some areas on creeks. At 1 location I found 100s of bottles and shards. I'm gonna go back once it warms up again and search a little more.

    First Dump i've found!

    Earlier this weekend I found my first dump. Pretty easy to identify as it had a car in it! I believe it was a 58 Pontiac chieftain. There was a lot of scrap metal and I actually found 4 or 5 dumps but only searched one. The house site had a house there in the mid 1800s but did not dig deep so...

    Old Iron piece

    I don't know what this is but I found it by a creek. It weighs about 30-35 pounds so it's relatively large but I'm not sure if it's even old. Any help would be great.

    I haven't done much in a long time but now I may. I found this source for old maps that even allows you to overlay them. Just find your location and mess around. I found that my house was on a civil war line. Here it is:

    Questions about some creek finds

    I found these in a creek and was wondering if anyone had any info on them. I believe the one labeled lanta, which I assume meant Atlanta, may be a coke bottle piece. Another one appears to have the word cancer and an underlined A on it. All info is appreciated.

    Is it worth digging?

    Have any of you ever dug near the site of an old steel mill. I know of one but it is near a pretty developed area but I believe it could have something. What do you think?

    What is your weirdest find?

    What is your weirdest or just most surprising find? Mine would have to be a Pennsylvania firefighters button from the civil war era that was not even buried. I don't have any pictures right now but will have some later.

    possible turquoise find

    I found this rock that appears to be turquoise in a creek in Tennessee. There have been no confirmed turquoise finds in Tennessee and the only other thing it could be is slag but it is too waxy looking.

    All of these remain unidentified and were all found in a creek in Tennessee. The black bone piece clearly has some bone marrow in it. Any help with id is appreciated.

    2 shards

    I found these shards at a field by a house built in the late 1700s. One of the shards clearly has the word Timore in all caps and the other shard appears to be a bottle top with no seam so I believe it may have been a pontilled bottle. The other shard (the clear one) looks like part of a...

    Huge dump but can't dig

    Today I came across a huge dump that has 1000's of bottles but is at a state park. This is the biggest dump I have ever found and the bottles at the surface appear to be from the 60's.
