    Very interesting.

    I note no-one has made a stab at explaining it yet? Buried barrel with usable bullets. Why?

    Got to love those 'US' sites as they were very wasteful.

    To much to haul & hidden so the Confederates could not use them
    As I am finding , In life we Start at the top,with the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through True faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or True Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with Both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil.

    I know you had fun with that one. Quite an assortment of period artifacts, and the quantity of lead from that one spot is staggering. Nice going man!
    I’ve mentioned before that my new book can be a great holiday gift idea for a family member or friend, and I’ve noticed recently that many are purchasing a copy for that very purpose. However, time is running short, so anyone interested in taking advantage of this opportunity should do so in the next week to ensure delivery prior to Christmas. Ordering your copy is as simple as clicking on the PayPal link at the bottom and sending $59 + $5 shipping. If you’d like your copy to be personalized by the author, or just signed, please indicate so in the PayPal notes section. Anyone not familiar with this comprehensive publication can check out the info provided below for a detailed description of its contents plus comments from buyers. Thanks for your support.

    Many of you were aware that I've been working on a major book project for close to 3 years, and now it's finally been published. This book, entitled “DISCOVERING VIRGINIA’S COLONIAL ARTIFACTS — AComprehensive Guide to Recovery, Identification and Preservation”, is 400 pagesin length and packed with nearly 1000 color photos of 16th thru 18th centuryartifacts I’ve personally recovered over the last 20+ years along with manyquality post-colonial finds that randomly turn up at early sites. I alsobelieve it’s the first of its kind in this subject matter area to hit themarket. But don’t be misled by the title as this is a must-have not only forcolonial enthusiasts, but for all novice and veteran relic hunters as well as itcovers a wide range of pertinent topics including research methods, how tosecure permission, reading and searching sites, finding and excavating trashpits, artifact cleaning, preservation, documentation and display, ethics, andmuch more. It basically doubles as both a “how-to” manual as well as a colonialartifact “encyclopedia” covering all major categories to help more preciselyidentify and date your finds. It also contains 40 sidebars scattered throughoutthe book that expand on various topics of interest plus a listing of “SuggestedResources” at the end of most chapters that identifies other publications,websites, technical papers, etc, for additional reading if desired. The bookalso includes 9 appendices to provide supplemental material. It’s alsoprinted in all color on high quality, glossy stock and is contained within aheavy and attractive hardcover.
    If you're interested in ordering a copy you can click on the PayPal link below. It's cost is $59 + $5 for shipping within the continental US.

    Thank you everyone for the kind words. As always, what I MOST appreciate, is that you enjoyed the thrill of this discovery as much as I did. Yes, it was incredible. No, it can't be a lone hut. I hope someday to locate its neighbor. Thank you for the clear glass ID. I had never heard of a fruit or food jar. DAVERS- 238 of the bullets were identical. The last one was too, but it had been pulled. I'm just so thankful I got to do this! Cannonball Guy - thank you for the PM . . . Good luck everybody!

    Thanks for answering my inquiry.

    That single pulled round tell's a story by itself.

    Hope to see that 'group' shot up top soon.
