There is a Facebook Live video circulating showing the first signs of digging on the legendary Nazi Gold train! In an article from Mirror UK, the footage of the digging was captured by a drone and shows excavators eager to uncover new treasure. The gold in the train itself is believed to be hidden between Wroclaw and Walbrzych in western Poland. Based on other stories, there is a massive amount of treasure still left to be found from the Third Reich. These treasures included jewelry, artwork, gold, etc. The Nazi Gold Train was found by two men known as Andreas Richter and Piotr Koper. See source below to read more and see original article.

In a recent August post from Fox 17 West Michigan, a man with a metal detector from West Michigan found a wedding ring lost in Lake Michigan! A woman named Jamie Kennedy lost the ring after a beach trip with her friends and kids. She said, “I was in the water when I pushed my ring up to get some sand out from under in it when it fell into the water.” She looked awhile for the ring, but gave up. As a last plea for help, she went on Facebook and asked for help.
In exclusive news from Independent, it appears that there is much more to meet the eye when it comes to the story of Stonehenge.

At an archaeological complex known as Durrington Walls, archaeologists found, a circle of huge timber posts, about 500 meters in diameter! This find is definitely raising eyebrows!

Are you looking for a vacation spot a bit more adventurous? Maybe something to make you feel like you’re in a movie on a quest for treasure? With some of these spots, you can make that a reality!
Here are a few of the 8 locations great for treasure hunters listed by Lyn Mettler for Fox News
- Coastal Louisiana – At this spot, the locals believe a famous pirate named Jean Lafitte, buried a lot of treasure near the bayou somewhere. Lafitte and his buccaneers used to hide out along the waterways of Lake Charles. According to legend, they hid big stashes of gold and silver!
- Superstition Mountains, Mesa, Arizona – Have you heard of the search for the lost treasure of Jacob Waltz, also known as the “lost Dutchman”? In the 1800’s, he discovered a rich gold oremine, but the exact location of that exciting spot died with him in 1891. This story has inspired the TV series, “Legend of the Superstition Mountains.” Others have searched for it, but never found the mine.
- Crystal Coast, North Carolina – There’s a rumor that says one of history’s most famous pirates, Blackbeard spent a great deal of time off the coast of North Carolina with his ship, “The Queen Anne’s Revenge”. Based on information from Teach’s Hole, an exhibit and shop dedicated to the pirate on Ocracoke Island, “Holiday’s Island” in the Chowan River, “Teach’s Oak” near Oriental and “The Old Brick House” near Elizabeth City are just some of the sites that Blackbeard has thought to have buried his treasure!
