    If the wood has been buried in mud, and in brackish or fresh water, it could easily last hundreds of years. I have pieces of wooden ships, that are 250 years old, and wooden rifle parts, 80 years in the sea, (Baltic) that are like new, although the metal has rusted. Wood from viking ships seems to last forever, if buried in a bog.

    Sorry about your back porch!

    Ok thankf for posting your finds. I have no experience in wood finds, so can't comment. The stone object is what? The metal pieces don't look more than 200 years old & the bottle is not much older.

    I'd say about early nineteenth century. The bottle, of course, could be a later period drop onto a site that dates much earlier. However, the iron smith hammer is same as what I have found in a site dating back to the 1830's
