    I've been hunting piles of excavated dirt on a lot here and found around 7 unbroken bottles but the ground is littered with fragments from hundreds of them. I wish I could have gotten to them before the excavators did.....

    What your finding isn't that uncommon though, after all they were trash to the people who tossed them out so they didn't care if they broke, plus kids throwing rocks, or target practice over the course of many years take a toll.

    No! But I did find a nineteenth century bottle dump with no whole bottles and large rocks therein that were used to break the bottles. It was an 1850's fort site and soldiers broke all unused bottles to keep Indians from utilizing them to store and carry water.

    Oops . . . . .

    I've dug a lot of bottle dumps as a kid, and most of the bottles were broken. Still, the unbroken ones made it worth while. The pop bottles with broken tops I cut into glasses. They have to be really cool to be worth the effort though.

    I've got a virgin dump site with whole bottles as far as the eye can see waiting for me. One person has dug through it a bit and that's my cousin.

We are new and We think we have some nice pieces. clear color painted, embossed,unique,unusual, intact, some with wicks, corks, pop tops and screw tops, some with stoppers and whole droppers. We dont know any thing not even the right questions to ask. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    How about a hole I dug with around 100 broken pottery ginger beers in it? Only one was not broken.
