    That's really cool. Would be cool to scrape that place all down to the bottom layer.

    You need to bring Garscale in with his screening machine. Would love to see the results. Gary

    That would be nice, but it is a mowed area right beside a road. I will be cutting small sections of sod, peeling them back, digging down until I hit clay, then pouring the dirt back in and replacing the sod. .

    Those are some beautiful ceramic shards, and nice LC, I have alot of ceramic shards its hard not to save them when some are Chinese or Japanese handpainted. Obviously that's a good spot, wouldn't be surprised if you found clay pipe fragment there

    Thanks DD. There are clay pipe fragments in this area. I found a couple pipe stems when I first discovered this trash deposit. It would be nice to find an intact bowl. I'm also hoping I come across an intact bottle. I didn't find any broken bottle pieces which is strange.
