Under the Outhouse

I've poked around in trash dumps at a couple of family homesteads, but never have I probed beneath an outhouse. This MetaFilter post has some good links about amateur privy archaeologists and the treasures they find. Remember to wash up when you're done.

Those who prefer to stay aboveground may want to visit The Outhouse Museum's website, which features a collection of vintage postcards.
