    Great job cleaning up after the arkies. I'm curious if there was some significance to the site? I can't see why the arkies would be interested in an 1840's site unless they were training little arkies?

    Likely development permit triggered studies. They will study dredger tailings if it's paid for by someone else.
    Many times the MO is to work at a regulatory agency...get these extensive study requirements embedded into the process...then hang their own shingle...reaping the benefit of their past (government) work experience.

    Many thanks WhyMe, I can't remember ever finding so many bells in one hunt before.

    I like the bells too. They may all be sleigh bells. You know they had a strap of crotal bells that went around the girth, but they also had a set of bells that looked like your odd one that were mounted to a thin metal arch. They attached to the tops of the haimes and were really active as the horse moved it's neck. Must have really been noisy with both sets.

    Best wishes and happy returns!
    Thanks for your insight into the crotals Phil.
    You're probably correct in suggesting that these all came from a horse harness, maybe one was left here at the site when it was abandoned.
    The larger bronze bells most definitely hung from a leather strap around the neck of animals.

    Best of luck to you my friend,
    Dave

    This is something that always surprises me as well.
    It's truly amazing what survives and what doesn't after being in farm fields for 150+ years.

    Thanks for your support here Sir,
    Dave

    Glad to see that bell come out in one piece.

    Huge bonus that you finally scored a token on this site, now get back out there and find more!!
    Hi John!
    It was great seeing you last week at the farm show in Chesley.
    I wish we could've had more time to use your new Deus, we definitely should meet up soon for a hunt my friend.

    Thanks very much for your support here on Tnet, I see very few familiar faces from CMD over here.

    I would like to get back to this field again this weekend, that is if it ever stops raining!
    Dave

My earliest being a 1813. Must of been a lot of Canadian tourist down here back then.You can see it in my post from yesterday.
    Thanks for your post RelicMaster.
    That's amazing to hear you're finding Canadian 19thc tokens on Long Island!
    I guess either lost be a tourist or through trade.

    I'll check out your finds posts as soon as I'm done my responses here.
    Best of luck to you,
    Dave

    Thanks for your post dirtlooter.
    I think a picture says a thousand words and I want you to feel like you were there with me too.
    Thanks for your support,

    This is a very interesting theory screwynewy.
    You're correct in your suggestion that the arkies usually only target Native American settlement sites or very early pioneer settlements.
    I use a number of mid-19thc maps to locate my sites and this site didn't appear on any of my maps.

    Based on the age of the coin, the sash buckle, the bottles and the crotal bells, I feel this site started around 1840 and was abandoned around 1865 - 70.

    Thanks for your post,
    Dave

    Thanks for your insight into this site IMAUDIGGER.
    Here in Ontario it's the law, that an archeological survey must be completed prior to any land development.

    I just think this was one of the earlier settlement sites in my area and was only inhabited for a short time period.

    Best of luck to you Sir,
    Dave
