100 years ago people dumped their trash in the backyard outhouse, well, and trash pit. Now this “trash” provides valuable insight into the lives of the people who once called your property home. Even after a century, glassware (bottles, marbles, jars), stoneware (crockery) and certain metal objects (coins, copper, brass) often are well preserved and awaiting discovery.
Discover Underground is an historical research and artifact recovery project based in the Pacific Northwest. We provide a range of services to discover the hidden history of private property. Artifacts are located, excavated, restored and researched to provide property owners with a window into their home’s past.
