I've posted a few blogs about the British finding great stuff in their attics while I only have mothballs in mine. Now, to add insult to injury, even their mud yields better stuff than any of the mud I live near.
The most I've ever uncovered in the mud is an arrowhead and I felt darn lucky to find it. Of course the arrowhead yielding mud was in Virginia and I live in California. If I lived back east in an old city like Boston, I'd probably have some artifact-worthy mud. Out here in the west, the mud is just too new. There isn't even any gold left in it. Some people have all the luck.
