      first,
      make a record of where on your property you found them, and at what depth,
      if you can.
      include what you were doing when you found them.
      if possible, take pics of the objects in situ or at least the location of
      the find.
      second, some question: do you want to preserve these items or restore then?
      do you want to be able to handle them or purely preserve them like a museum
      might?
