Sometimes, all you need is a metal detector and a lot of luck to find some of the most amazing archeological finds... Ancient ruins, coins, swords, even a World War Two bomber can all be found without any kind of proper training. Anybody can find priceless artifacts if they just look hard enough... Number X. Ballarat Nugget Gold is super valuable... at least that's what the late night infomercials say, anyway. As of writing, gold is sitting at about $39 per gram, which... yeah, that's pretty good. To put that into perspective, a gram of gold could put gas into your car, and buy you a pizza and rent a movie (if you stretched it). In other words, a gram of gold is a pretty decent night in. Number X. Roman Era artifacts Ran Feinstien and Ofer Raanan are two Israeli novice divers who were diving around the ancient port of Caesarea when they stumbled onto something crazy.... a wealth of ancient roman sculptures and artifacts. Number X. 3,000 year old Bronze-age sword For this next entry, let's head all the way to the Denmark... assuming you aren't already in Denmark, I guess. A pair of Danish friends, Ernst Christiansen and Lis Therkildsen, had brought a metal detector out for a walk out in a field, in the town of Svebolle. Number X. World War 2 Bomber found by Veterans Let me introduce you to Operation Nightingale. It's an archaeological project that lets veterans go out into the field and practice some basic archaeology at various sites. The project is used as a means to give injured veterans, or veterans struggling with psychological trauma a different kind of therapy, if they want it. That's where a group of veterans in the UK come into play. Number X. Mr. Rajaguru's Bizarre temple adventures An Indian schoolteacher walks into a forest... No, that wasn't a set-up for a joke or anything, an Indian schoolteacher, named Mr. Rajaguru was actually walking in a forest, when he found an ancient temple. That's a pretty productive hike, if I do say so myself... Number X. gold bracelets in Denmark Remember the "Apocalypse" list we did awhile back, and how we went on and on about vikings? Well that's because Vikings are cool... At least this writer thinks so, anyway. Back to the topic, though: A small team of amateur archaeologists discovered a huge cache of golden viking bracelets in Denmark. the bracelets were all found relatively close to each other... and that's a really big deal. Number X. Roman Emperor's needed slaves for their tunnels... or the other way around? Probably the other way around. Tivoli, Italy. The home of Roman Emperor Hadrian's Villa. It's a villa... with a giant system of underground tunnels! Honorable mentions: Janet Stephens, a professional hairdresser and sometimes amateur archaeologist, discovered an ancient roman hairstyle that had been lost to time. Which is super impressive and cool since it's literally a revival of history. Number X. Ithaca Ever read up on your greek? Ever hear of a little obscure book called... The Odyssey? That question was rhetorical, if you've seriously never heard of or read The Odyssey, go find your local library, if those even still exist.

Read up on ancient civilizations and you'll see that africa is full of lost civilizations that had a tremendous amount of wealth. West Africa mostly.
