    Finally I think I found it

    During the last two years I have posted about an old dump/cellar hole that I had located about 10 years ago but did not have much time to dig at that time .The property changed hands and it took a while until I gained permission from the new owner .Last summer I looked several times without success and until today it was a repeat of last summer .I was wrapping up for today when I stumbled on it . The picture is of pieces that where on the surface or an inch or so deep Click image for larger version.

    Judging by those neck pieces, and the blue jar, late 1800's to at least the 1920's. Gotta go badger on that spot now!


    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    The Bald Eagle photo...he/she posed for me, gave me it's best American look. I felt privileged to get the shot.

    Did you find any bottles with crossbones on them? Years ago I was told poison was sold in glass bottles and they are worth a few bucks to the antique dealers. Good Luck Zarpman

    Never heard it described that way but it is a perfect way to put it . A badger is a digging machine

    jgas That is high praise coming from you I always am in amazement of some of the items you have found during the two plus years I have bee a member of TNet .I hope there is some thing there that makes it worth finding .Believe me I have spent a lot of time thinking and looking for that spot .I have health issues that limit how much time I can be there digging Plus this coming week is the mentored youth deer season in PA Four other adults and myself have 4 kids under 16 that we have plans to take deer hunting I have had to cut back on most of my hobbies but I have a few that even at a reduced amount are priceless to me If I could I would have been there all day today but .I found it the first time around 2001 or 2002 .A few more days hopefully will not matter.One small piece had the doctors name embossed on it He was from Maryland I have been trouble posting pictures I am going to try to show a picture of what the area looks like .It is about 50 acres of what you wClick image for larger version.

    Today was my first digging day .I found 3 bottles that where intact but the best one a boob top has cracks in it ,a small brown bottle and some kind of Heinz bottle ,another horse shoe ,that makes 4 so far and a metal plate that has a name of the company that made it on it . I spend a good amount of time just removing the Poke Berry weeds that are growing all around the area . In some areas I am down 2 feet and still finding broken glass and pottery .But if it is a cellar 2 feet is hardly even a start .There was a lot more broken tops from old soda or beer bottles and I did find one porcelian stopper. Not sure when I will get back .I have other things planned for the end of the week and this is not going anywhere so I will need to see how it works into my schedule

    Raining today so I thought I would post a pic from yesterday .Not much to show but it appears that the Heinz bottle is from the late 1880's until 1905.So not old
    but still about 100 years .

    Wow. Big enough place to use a bob cat if you could do that. Peel off a layer or two. That would be a blast to dig there. Ya never know what might pop up. Hopefully your health is good and you can get some good stuff. Keep us posted. Jgas

    That would be nice to transport dirt back away as it was being taken off the top . It seems like a lot of the better pieces of broken glass are concentrated in a small area .It also has spots that appear to have a lot of small size flat stones .Like they brought in fill ground to level off the spot even with the surrounding area .I remember from years ago there was an obvious lot spot where the dump is.Like it had sunken in And a lot more broken pottery than I ever found in a farm dump also . The problem with the bob cat is I would certainly break all the best items that might be there and be left with the new more common stuff. I found 3 bottles that I are intact so far .And all are items I never found before .So I am hoping at some point I get to the actual bottle part of the dump . It appears that as time goes by the ground hog activity is what is bringing the bottles to the surface .I figure I have about 6 or so weeks until the ground starts freezing here .But if I am where the glass is the frozen ground should not totally stop me from looking. Now that the heat is over as far as the temps I will make more head way than when I was roaming around in 6 foot tall switch grass and taller weeds looking for a spot that the last time I seen it was bare dirt . It might be a bust or it might be the best spot I ever found .But I found it and I hope it is what I thought it would be Thanks for the encouragement . Hope to get there again tomorow

    Second test hole about 3 feet deep finding more pieces and bigger pieces. Broke my shovel handle .Next time will be my third time of actual digging .Second test hole is 8 feet away and was getting more pieces as I went . Next time should yield more info one way or the other.Click image for larger version.
