    Old bricks

    Has anyone ever tried to date a site from bricks found while digging.I found an intact brick with the name 'Rose' on it. Any way of finding out it's age?

    Re: Old bricks

    If it's from the Rose Brick Co. of Roseton, NY, it dates 1884 or later. Scroll about 3/4 down at:

    Probably just a mold variation.

    The only reference I could find to another Rose Brick Co. (which may or may not have been a branch of the one in New York) was to one which was destroyed in the Great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906.

    MM,

    neat brick; every now and then I will lug
    one out of the woods.

    Have them scattered here and there on my
    property. :P

    Bricks are neat, really help with the age issue.

    have a good un...........
    In the academies many books, at the circus many sacks of peanuts, at the club rooms many cigar butts.

    Bricks are cool. Not many around these parts, following the 1906 earthquake. Brick buildings tend to collapse and kill folks, so they aren't particularly popular as building material anymore...many restrictions to using them over a certain height. Bricks, like almost everything else, are collected by some folks. There's a market for just about everything, and that's exactly why treasure includes a broad range of stuff. It's all good.
