    Score! The best thing I found digging in my yard was an old roof tile.

    It's an awesome story!

    As a kid, digging around in the back yard, I always hoped to find dino eggs, arrow heads, or evidence from ancient civilizations. I never found anything (but I'm sure I left some amazing treasures for the next kid — kitchen scissors, army guys, a very special collections of rocks from all over my then known universe )

    I can only imagine how bloody stoked these people were!




    Incidentally, now, when I do any sort of renovation I leave stuff for the next person to find (Recently a 1980s Optimus Prime + a HotWeels Batmobile ~ 1989). Not as cool as dino eggs or a beautiful mosaic but at least it's something.

    The house I grew up in was a late 1800s Victorian home that once had a college located next door. The college burned before WWI but our house had smoked and distorted windows on that side. The best part was our backyard had once been where the college dumped trash. I dug up all kinds of "treasure" including old medicine bottles, square nails, a gun, and all kinds of cool stuff.

    Really cool. When we were in Rome last Spring, we visited the Basilica San Clemente, which has three archeological layers within the structure, dating back to the 1st century and you can hear and see water flowing from Rome’s original sewer system. According to our guide, in the mid-1800’s, a priest noticed that a floor tile was cracked and when he dug out the tile to reset it, he noticed the top of a marble column.
