Buried Treasure

Over the weekend we had taken a walk in the backyard and found a big piece of white porcelain under a tree. So yesterday, we took a bucket and some shovels and went treasure hunting.

That big thing looks kind of like a can opener or something. Maybe some kind of tool? We found the nail when we dug up the garden.

Porcelain. Maybe a bowl- some of the pieces are rounded.

Clamshell with quartz inside and little barnacle things on the outside. The coolest thing we found, I think.

Loads of colored glass. I know most of it is probably old beer bottles or pickle jars, but still cool.

We talked about all the ways the stuff could have got there. Ethan's favorite explanation is that Indians used to live here and they went around breaking peoples' windows.
