VietNamNet News had some exciting news in the world of archaeology and treasure hunting! According to the article, the director of the Binh Dinh Museum in Vietnam discovered over 600 artifacts including a time god (Kala) statue, Shiva god’s hand, ancient terracotta artifacts and Champa reliefs! I thought this was fascinating because, as the article pointed out, the finds have show signs of Vietnamese, Chinese and Cham origins! To read more on this discovery, see source below.

What are your thoughts on this find? I’m amazed!

We like the idea of venturing out into unknown areas and with that in mind, images of dark forests, large spiderwebs and creepy buildings come into our head. As a travel and literature lover, one example that stands out clearly in my mind is the image of the dark, abandoned fortress known as “Dol Guldor” in J.R.R Tolkien’s Middle Earth. For those of you that know the series, the fortress was far from abandoned! :0 People like to explore the areas that bring out there curiosity and test their courage. Just like in the stories we love, we are drawn to exploring what is out there; even if that means being brave and defending what we care most about. Halloween is one time of the year, that people especially let this love of exploring the creepy and bizarre places come out.
If you are looking for some unusual places to visit that will test your courage and even give you some memories you will never forget, we recommend you check out our “Scariest Places!” board on Pinterest. If you happen to find some interesting items, that is great too! We love being the inspiration and recommendations from others for where to go.

There really are amazing things to dig up that shed light on past civilizations. When I saw this story, I felt an even greater need to travel and explore, so I can see if I discover something unique like this. Others in my family have always been interested in archaeology, me included, thus, my curiosity peaks when I read things like this. One of things that is so interesting about this, as The Shield Gazette pointed out, is that the treasure found was discovered by an amateur archaeologist. I love reading news about discoveries from amateur treasure hunters because it helps to solidify the fact that anyone can find something great!
According to the Express, centered in the UK, former Pirates of the Caribbean star Mackenzie Crook explains his thoughts on the hobby of metal detecting! I was very excited to read this. Not only do I find the show to be entertaining and humorous, but I like to hear what the actors think about the hobby itself. On the subject of treasure, Crook stated, “More often than not, you do not find treasure, but you never go away disappointed.” Personally, I can understand what he is saying. Read more
