This is amazing Lyn, but how many other sites like this are there around the country waiting to be discovered. At the same time I wonder how many sites like this have been found and just cleared out.?

It's a good thing that there are people who care, some people would have just sold them off at an auction.

I should imagine most of it is being kept in the dark.

What a find ,you would think it would be rusty and damp down there ,but it looks like a good clean and it would be ready to go ,must be well made.
