Paul his kid and I went up town looking for lots to probe. We found a few,but decided to do them at a later date. Paul was kind of beat up from tree work and didn't feel like to much (heavy digging) so we went to a place I frond a small dump a few months ago.Long story short,that place started to suck [:D] so we started to walk the woods. Looking for arrow heads or whatever we could find. While Paul was checking out this area we saw old shards before. Me and Dillon walked up the hill.I spotted this old stone structure up high on the clif. By the looks of the stone this was very old. We called Paul up and he started to dig on the side of the structure hoping for signs of old life,coins arrow heads whatever. I walked around and started to dig between the 2 standing walls.Yep they used this stone box for a dump and it is packed! We dug a while but we didn't reach bottom.We are hoping they used it through out the years and the bottom of this thing is the oldest. Here is some of the stuff we got today.

I had to use my cell camera because I forgot my real cam at home.

This is the outside of the stone structure.

I did some searching and one page showed a fly? I found a few small bottles on line with that word on it but not this bottle.
