Grout Cottage: A relic

During heavy construction, the crew found this August 1910 edition of the New York World. The World was published from 1860 to 1931.
So the house was built in 1895, the paper is dated 1910, let’s do the math. This newspaper has lived in the NC dirt underneath a house for 103 years. How was it not reduced to dust a long time ago.
