James’ November 2013 Finds

Posted by on January 3, 2014

November provided a few outings to reclaim history. First, I continued to try and cut through the brushy 1743 property and was rewarded with several items of note.

Also in November, I requested and received permission to search the field next to my church. This was the site of a circa 1830 house that was demolished a few years ago. This was my initial visit to this site and it proved to be chock full of artifacts, so much so that I was only able to cover about 20 square feet on my initial visit. Each hole also contained pottery pieces, brick, and glass. I’m pretty sure this was where the home’s privy was located—back then homeowners would simply bury their throw-away items in some concentrated place not far from the house.

Finally, in November I traveled back to Walkersville, MD, to return to a circa 1812 farmhouse. (See here: http://treasure-detectors.com/2013/07/20/update-on-james-recent-finds/ for items found on my initial visit.) You can read about the entire return trip in another post—it was no doubt my best outing ever, with many personal “firsts” achieved.
