Digging Up the History of Your Home

A few days after the shaking stopped post-Loma Prieta back in '89, friends of ours pulled out some pretty amazing artifacts from one of the new cracks in their very old walls. We're always hoping for something as miraculous as the newspaper, silverware and photographs that they found in their Victorian, but we haven't quite struck the proverbial gold.

While digging holes to plant some Redwoods this weekend, we found these treasures hanging out in the layers of soil and decomposed leaves.

We're a bit curious how and why such items made it in to the depths of our backyard, but we prefer to invent a sort of history instead of assuming someone was crass enough to toss the garbage out the backdoor.

We're curious...what have you been lucky (or unlucky) enough to pull up?
