    My goodness I hope folks understand just how hard it is to find those high concentrations of 17th Century relics. Finding one of those 1600s items would be a dream come true for most. You guys found a tote full. Really happy to see you getting out. I know in 2017 you were completely wrapped up with writing that masterpiece book of yours. Cool that your buddy had you sign it in the dirt. Iím glad I got of those books because Iím positive it will be one of those that is almost impossible to get your hands on in the future. It is THE COLONIAL BIBLE!!!! Just like our buddy Beau (Aquachigger) so kindly said on his YouTube review. Super proud of you pal

    Thanks for all the kind words Abe. And you're right - the book has been well-received and is selling extremely well. Not sure how long they'll last, but I'm definitely not going to pursue a 2nd printing as I need to finally get back to my digging life which I've mostly sacrificed over the last 2-3 years while working on this huge project. I didn't realize how much I missed getting out until Wednesday's dig, and it doesn't get any better than spending times like that with good friends, or with pulling out a 17th century pipe bowl every 5 minutes. Those are rare moments that we have to cherish as you might never get the opportunity to experience that again. Good to hear from ya buddy, and I hope a warm spell comes your way although things are not looking good at this point (even down here!).

    Just wanted to let everyone know that my new book is doing great and is well on its way to being sold out with about 900 copies selling in only 3 months, and it's unlikely the remaining inventory will last more than a few weeks. There will definitely not be a 2nd printing, so if you have any interest in obtaining a signed copy I would strongly recommend not delaying. For a detailed description of its contents plus some sample page views you can click on the link below. Many thanks to all those who purchased a copy and helped make this project a success.

    Nice finds. I highly recommend everybody pick up a copy of your book as well though you need to include a chapter on pomanders. Lol

    Thanks Jon. We still can't figure out why there were so many early pipe bowls in this spot, and virtually no glass. But I'm not complaining ....

    A pit with lots of pipe bowls and stems isn't bad. Great history lesson again! I never got a pipe bowl with a makers mark here, but i absolutely love that bearded man! Do you know if these are German made?

    Well winter and the DEEP FREEZE has set in. I can now begin to dig into your book and learn how a tried and true treasure hunter gets all this really cool stuff. Amazing sight and much respect you aren't "afraid" to share your methods for finding and recovering these historic finds. You are an incredible friend and asset to the community Bill. You also have given me more than a few winter time assignments to stepping up my game in this wonderful treasure hunting journey. ~S~

    Thanks man. I already have a whole bellarmine as pictured in my book. One of my favorite early ceramic examples for sure.

    Thanks you so much for all the kind words. Glad you've got something to help get you through the winter, and hopefully you'll pick up a few tips to help when you get back to digging in the spring. HH .... Bill

    Man that's just awesome! What a site. That's a great pile of early relics. I'm happy to just find a stem. I'm still trying to find my first pit. Think I'm close, where I found my small 1600s buckle I dug up some black Glass and some brick. But after 12 inch deep the grounds so hard I broke my shovel. Will try to pin point it this spring. But don't think a probe will work. Happy new year and hope you have a good year digging in 18.

    Just fantastic finds there! I didn't know that smeared-on dirt was an option. Wish I'd known, I'd have requested that for my copy.

    Loads of 17th century clay pipe bowls and stems plus another cool find

    I love it all Bill. Prior to ever relic hunting I had a passion for all things old which set me on a path of researching 17th century Virginia and buying every book I found interesting on the subject. Humeís books on archaeological digs in the area are what spurred me to research and dig. I thought I was the only one around who cared about pipe stems, bellarmine jugs, wine bottle seals, etc. then I met you and realized I wasnít the only crazy person around. Your trips to this site and youíre posts about them encapsulate everything I love about this hobby. That site and those pits are very special and I would love to see a recap of of all of the great finds that have come from there.
    Iím pumped that your digging passion has been reinvigorated and I like look forward to meeting up soon and hopefully finding some new pits to open up....maybe I can throw my wife in one before filling it back in
