Hey guys, I am looking for digging partners around the Albany, GA area or the Statesboro/Savannah, GA areas. I go to Georgia Southern and would love to do some digging on the weekends. I don't know much about privys or digging way down into the ground (I have dug up some 50s-60s sites near here, but I am looking to join someone to help them out and find some cool bottles. Thanks :)

We would love to do this, but Savannah seems to be pretty picked over, from what we have been told. Would have to travel out a ways. We don't have maps or access to them to see where we could dig. At the moment, we can't even try it in our current situation. Only thing we could do is some old house or building hunting to check for stuff tucked away or forgotten.

I completely understand. I was at an antique shop in Statesboro and found a fair amount of old bottles and poisons that had stickers that read "found in Savannah, 2010." I guess they are still searching down that way. Let me know if I can help you in any way. I would love to find some stuff.

They are just common poisons. Small blue and green square bottles that say "NOT TO BE TAKEN." They wanted $15 a piece for them and I was like NOOO WAY! I still don't have a poison bottle :(
