What is so cool about the bottle find from 1820 it had air in it that was over 200 years old.. I wonder if anything could be found in the air under scientific analysis... Nice Finds

Thanks Hunter1805!

If that air was analyzed I suspect it would have been pretty pristine; the area it was found was in the early pioneer stage of development back in the early 1800's. I always like to speculate as to how bottles fin their way into the water in those times - tossed overboard from a passing steamer? A fur trapper whetting his whistle? Perhaps a pioneer farmer disposing of his trash? Or, just maybe, a couple of ol' buddies sitting waterside, sharing the bottle!

Great stuff for sure. Where are you located? My dive buddies and I have found hundreds of nice bottles in Rhode Island and Massachusetts I have started giving them away cause I'm running out of storage space.

Could even wash out during lowland flooding.

Hey PD, I'm up in Ontario, Canada. I look for items tossed during the Pioneer Era; we have a lot of rivers and lakes up here so there's plenty of real estate to search. I too am having to be more discriminating in what I bring home, as the available space is getting crowded!
I'd love to see some of your finds; y'all have a much longer history down there, thus the chances of finding amazing history is top drawer in the good ol' U.S. of A.!

I'll try to take pictures of some of my favorites and post them, I've got a few from 1778.
