It's not so much any one find, but this one area: No matter where you dig, you'll find bones. Our house is an 1850s farm house full of bones and the builders filled the land around it with bones to ward off witches & evil spirits. Open up door and window frames, the fireplace, the floor, the walls, etc.: bones fall out. Dig the foundation up, bones. Dig 200 feet away to put in a large food garden, more bones. Dig by the road or out in the field, bones bones bones. They laced their immediate vicinity with bones. Under the barn, around the foundations of old outbuildings, and even their well.

Super superstitious! Any idea what kind of bones were talking about, chicken, goat, etc.
