Some quotes from their web site

"The word privy means private. This word was synonymously used with the word outhouse. An outhouse was simply a small "outbuilding" with a bench seat and a circular hole fashioned in it located over a pit. Before the turn of the century nearly all residences in the United States had at least one privy on their property. Although sometimes we privy hunters still regard that as a highly capricious statement."

This site has lots of pictures of their digs and the things they find there. Terry
