We found some old auto parts, including an Arizona 1933 copper license plate. This plate was in excellent condition. It was buried about 1 foot. This lead came from a road crew, who was going to build a new bridge over some old ranch foundations.
Another idea for finding some out of the way sites is to obtain some old maps of your area. Search local flee markets and garage sales for these maps or visit your local library and historical society, they will most likely have what you are looking for. A good map will be very detailed and show where structures and homesteads were; they will also show points of interest.
