I also found 2 partial tooth brushes, not sure if they are bone or not, I like how the horizontal holes follow the curve of the perimeter of the head. There's an arrow with the words extra fine London on the handle. Also found 3 small vials, 2 with liquid and 1 with crystals, no idea what they are.
I dug the tooth brushes behind Monticello Female Seminary in Godfrey Il. They dug pits for their trash so the goods were pretty concentrated but also pretty busted. Seminary was built in 1834, most of the stuff we found was 1850s to 1870s. Because the girls came from all over the world and from wealthy families there were a lot of fancy French perfumes and quite a bit of cut glass items. The older dumps are probably long gone due to constant construction of new buildings. My dump is now under a massive chrome, granite and glass Math and Science building. The creek behind this is loaded with tons of great bottle fragments.
