The city cleared a field next to a school. Used to have a house on the property going back to late 1800's.
They dug down deep maybe 40 feet deep on about half the property through a large section removing much dirt in trucks to other locations.
I'm thinking some good stuff left in the dirt on the trucks.
But a chunk of dirt was pushed up to the fence of the school next to a newly built road for the school.
Much of the pile of dirt has broken glass, pottery and other items. Some whole or minor damaged bottles survived.
Can't locate any whole pottery.

That's what I was thinking. I keep hoping if I keep digging something, bottles, coins will get older if I hit the right spot.
If not it's been fun hunting this location.

If they were to dig into the Privy from that 1800's House good chance some good old bottles there. LEON.
