I may have found a new dump location that could go back to the very early 1800s!

The Swampy area close to the bottom is most likely spot for the dump. Maybe it's all submerged under Water? LEON.

Southeastern CT, U.S.A. Also in Adams & York Co,
Bad news is that I found only a rock dump (No glass or metal) in the location I searched. Good news However is that I did get permission to metal detect an 1740s house and the homeowner said he will let me look through about 5 boxes of bottles from the attic he has not ever touched since he bought the house (hopefully there are some good ones!).

Oh nice, I wonder what could be in those boxes. If it's a digger's old collection from the 70s, there could be some fantastic stuff in there.

I like the old photos where they show the privies. Rural pictures are probably harder to find, but the city shots are telling. This one is Atlantic City. Most of these areas are pavement and concrete now, but interesting to see how they laid out the privies in the back.
