Finished your holiday shopping early? Need a break from all the Christmas movies? We’ve got you covered with a day-long Diggers marathon, featuring all-new episodes that follow the adventures of treasure hunters KG and Ringy.
The two metal detecting buffs “King George” Wyant and Tim “The Ringmaster” Saylor take their hobby seriously, traveling the country looking for lost relics of history in their digs. Invited by landowners, historians and archaeologists to dig for treasure, the two crewmates aren’t motivated by money, but rather the thrill of the hunt and a genuine love of history.
From the battlefields of Gettysburg to New Orleans’ French Quarter, the pair visit sites rich in history to unearth hidden relics of the past. While the pair call themselves treasure hunters, most relics of the past they uncover—old coins, guns, rings, jewelry and tools— have relatively little monetary value. But the low payout doesn’t discourage KG and Ringy from their relentless searching, spending long days in the field and digging countless holes to find a few humble artifacts, while dreaming of the rare gold treasures they hope to unearth someday.
Catch up on KG and Ringy’s journeys with an all-day Christmas Eve marathon.
