Probably all of us at some point were fascinated with finding a treasure. Maybe after watching Indiana Jones, or reading one of Jules Verne’s adventure books, some of you got that treasure-hunter’s itch that needed to be scratched, so you went to the back yard and started shoveling tirelessly. Now, most likely, at the end of the day all you found was a bunch of earthworms and an old penny, but that was more than enough to sate your childhood curiosity.
But what if I told you that some actual treasures are still out there, just waiting to be discovered? You could stumble upon something either randomly, or by following all sorts of clever hints and puzzles from centuries ago, but you’d be still hunting treasures!
1. Oak Island “The Money Pit”
In 1795 three friends discovered an incredibly deep pit on Oak Island, which they called “the money pit” because they thought that’s what was at the bottom. Interestingly enough, till this day nobody had gone all the way down.
2. Lost Treasure of the Alamo
Of course you’ve heard of the Alamo battle, but did you know that there are rumors of Davy Crockett stashing valuables somewhere in the area? That’s hidden treasure waiting to be found!
3. The Imperial Seal
Over 1100 years ago the Imperial Seal of China, which was in possession of the Royal family for over a thousand years at that point, had simply vanished. Some people even think it’s a myth all together, and I can’t blame them.
