This book was written by two authors in the greater Chicago area. They happened to meet a man who has been digging privies in and around the city for decades. While Civil War military artifacts are missing, and while the finds cover many eras, it's still a fascinating peek into the world of this unique form of historical archaeology.

The book is hard-bound and in new condition. Priced below retails.
