    Good thought, nothing ancient then.

    There is a well in my garden which is now incorporated in the conservatory with a glass lid, it looks good when lit up at night.  Also found what I think may have been an ice house.  Its under the terrace now. Most recent find was a piece of metal in the shape of a horses head.  No idea what it was.

    I found a plastic giraffe image  Loads of old (Victorian/Edwardian) broken china too which is slightly more interesting.

    When we bought this house, there was a black plastic wrapped shape hidden deep under the leylandii at the back of the garden. We just left it there until one day we decided to be enthusiastic and dig it out.

    Imagine our surprise when we carefully unwrapped a microwave oven...

  • 1950s end terrace house built on farmland. Lovely mix of rubble, brick, pottery and on one occasion a two foot lump of sandstone. Which was nice..
