The Diggers Are Back! Season 2 Starts Tonight.

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.

    Love to see the finds these guys make. Unfortunately, their antics are barely tolerable.

    When Ringy dug up the New jersey coin he left something in the hole. Looked like a small coin. If you watch the episode you can see it when he pulls the big coin out. It had the same patina as the big coin and you could see the edge of the coin or button

    This show would be good if these two hosts would step up to include more than grade school children. Adults, as I, who like the hobby, are generally to “turned off” by the hosts, to keep watching. They are really that awful, bordering on obnoxious, even.

    I’m Sorry???

    President, National Geographic
    Editors, National Geographic Magazine

    Dear President and Editors,

    I have been a member of the National Geographic Society for some twenty five years or so. I am also a professional archaeologist, and many years ago the National Geographic Society funded my professor’s (Dr. Edward B. Kurjack) work in Yucatan. This letter concerns the National Geographic Channel television programming, and as advertised in the National Geographic magazine.

    I am deeply concerned at the depths of professional incompetence and violation of all professional ethical standards as depicted by National Geographic channel. TV programming broadcasts such as the program, “Diggers” is an affront to professional archaeology and a disgrace to the National Geographic Society. This program encourages the looting of historic sites for profit and openly presents looters reveling in their culture theft. No data recording or provenance occurs. Archaeological finds are relegated to the concept of “juice”, how insulting and disgracing is this to the National Geographic Society’s many decades of dedication to professional scientific investigation of history and prehistory?! Why is there no disclaimer that excavating of historic and prehistoric artifacts on sites on public land is not only shameful but illegal? Why, after many decades supporting scientific archaeological investigation, would the National Geographic Society bastardize their prestige organization to such base and nonprofessional looting?

    The National Geographic channel is being surpassed in professionalism, interest and timely programming by the likes of the Science Channel, the History Channel, the Discovery Channel and even the Military Channel. I can only strongly encourage those who have the authority to exploit “National Geographic” to professional, ethical and high educational standards. Leave the bottom feeding to other networks. Please print this letter in its entirety in the National Geographic magazine, and why not run an unbiased, researched National Geographic article on the issues presented above? It might help salvage National Geographic from this disgraceful low in scientific inquiry and public education.

    Sincerely Yours, David Vlcek, Bonneville Archaeology, Pinedale Wy.

    Your oraganization should not only be embarrassed by this program but offended for tarnishing the integretity of the true professionals of National Geographic. These two children playing with metal detectors that their parents probably bought them and who they obviously still live with. scream like sissies everytime they find a button or a coin. Your so-called producers of this crap are thowing mud in the faces of all those that believed NatGeo was above all of this

    Where did NGC find these idiots? The show would be much better if it had real people acting normal. For this reason I will not tune into this show!

    I have heard that the boys came to Maine. It would have been nice if they would have made contact with the local metal detecting community. Perhaps some professionalism would have rubbed off on the duo. As for KG calling himself the King of Maine there are many who would beg to differ…Grow up its one thing to get excited but the way they act makes us all look like plundering fools……..Natgeo should have picked a couple of serous people to do this show….You look as bad as them and where the heck did they find the terminology that they use????

    Oh children, it’s only a tv show. Why don’t y’all just turn off your boob tubes and get some fresh air.

    KG and Ringy have done something I applaud. They have made history and archaeology interesting for young people. They have probably inspired a whole new generation to get out in the field ,and search for our nations history (myself included). I heard this show was canceled. It is a true shame. Now everyone can go back to watching some Kardashian related.

    While the boys enthusiasm is a little over the top obnoxious at times, this show has brought to light the hidden history of the artifacts/treasures they find. The “Professional Archeologists” should take off their blinders, shake off their pride and arrogance, that puts the Diggers silliness to shame, and embrace the historical significance and awareness this show brings to all of us. If it weren’t for metal detectorist, the vast majority of these treasures would never be found and discussed.

    These guys are a riot. Their “childness” is joy over uncovering artifacts that would have gone unearthed and unnoticed. Any one who metal detects would understand the profound intensity to hold an object that was last held decades or mellenniums ago and to image who held it last and why it ended up in the ground. The mystery and history behind it all is so interesting. I was online tonight searching when the next episode would be but….nada. Boo hoo. I hope they are out finding nectar in the hole as I plan to be doing as soon as this New England thaw occurs. Wish KG and Ringy would come back.

    Great show love the guys enthusiasm it’s catching, after watching the show I can’t wait to get out there myself. I’ve been metal detecting for thirty years or so. Keep up the good work.
