During Friday morning's walk we saw a small variety of litter.

Plastic bag litter.
Grocery bag: 21st century. In previous centuries litter generally didn't blow across country and get hung in trees.

Food can litter.
Food can: early 20th century. Cans can be dated by the type of construction -- material, seams, tabs and other features.

Pottery shard litter.
Pottery shard: 15th-19th century? On this walk we saw multiple pieces of pottery but none with paint. I'm not an expert and can't date shards by style, color and paint.
