Explorers and history buffs Tim “Ringy” Saylor and George “KG” Wyant are hitting the road again, metal detectors in hand, as they continue their search for lost pieces of American history. Premiering tonight at 10 and 10:30 p.m., Diggers has gained unrivaled access to historic sites and this season they’re breaking new ground to uncover the history hidden just beneath our feet.
This season, KG and Ringy have kicked up the hunt for “nectar” to a whole new level — from bayonets and rare buttons to Colonial cannonballs and historical coins — even a time capsule containing a rare piece of Apple history. The duo is relentless in their search for lost pieces of history, leaving no stone unturned and no field undetected.
From uncovering Steve Jobs’ original Apple Lisa mouse in Aspen, Colo., to discovering Mafia-related artifacts at the suburban home of Al Capone’s main executioner in Chicago, Ill, the Diggers are going into uncharted territories.
The Diggers team continues to work in close collaboration with archaeologists and historians at every site and is forging new relationships with preservation offices along the way. The duo takes pride in helping to save artifacts from destruction and leaving finds with their communities or land owners so they can be enjoyed for years to come.
Tonight at 10P on Diggers: Steve Jobs Time Capsule, KG and Ringy are in Aspen, Colo., in search of a famous time tube containing the mouse from Steve Jobs’ first mass-marketed Lisa computer. Buried in 1983 during the now-defunct International Design Conference in Aspen (IDCA), the tube was intended to be unearthed in 2000, but due to changes in the landscape, its exact location was unknown — until now. Using original survey coordinates and good old-fashioned detective work, the guys are able to narrow down the time capsule’s location. The contents are almost too good to be true — an 80’s gold mine and a rare piece of Apple history!
Don’t miss the season premiere of Diggers tonight at 10P.
