From Neowin:
There are tons of urban myths that turn out to be false but today, one of them can be confirmed as fact. An excavation of a old landfill in Alamogordo, New Mexico today to see if it really was the place that millions of Atari 2600 "E.T." game cartridges were buried in 1983 has proven that is indeed what happened.

The event, which is being filmed as part of an upcoming documentary on both the game and its now infamous fate, is being funded in part by Microsoft. The excavation was open to the public to view and, as reported by IGN, it wasn't long before the digging crews found some copies of "E.T."
