In my first garden (victorian country cottage) I uncovered the original rubbish heap (pre council refuse collection). Lots of broken pottery, a few coins, some lovely, intact, local earthenware ginger beer bottles and some unusual glass bottles.
In my previous garden (converted farm buildings) I found lots of bits from the old farm horses (horse shoes, one horse brass, bits of harness etc).
In my current garden (20 year old build on site of a 1930's bungalow) I have found several breeze blocks, large lumps of mortar, a concrete lintel at least 4' long (still there - couldn't dig it out) and a large buried roll of roofing felt and lots and lots of broken brick
