Archeology is an amazing line of work. Not only because you get to travel the world, visit remote places, and study ancient civilizations, but because from time to time, archeology rewards you with discoveries of a lifetime. In fact, we could say that the word archaeology is a fancier name for treasure hunting. Because, at the end of the day, on numerous occasions, archeologists do just that. They hunt for losing lost ancient treasures that help them unravel some of the secrets of our past. However, while true, invaluable treasures are rarely excavated, it doesn’t mean they are not, which makes it even more special when experts come across such finds.
Take, for example, British Archaeologist Howard Carter, who discovered the nearly intact tomb of King Tutankhamun. Filled with countless ancient treasures, it can be said that Carter’s discovery was a find of a lifetime. However, it isn’t the only such discovery ever made. In fact, archaeologists do come across true ancient treasures from time to time. This video shows the 12 most amazing ancient treasures and artifact finds.
