Join expert relic hunters, Savage & his crew, as they travel across the United States to discover buried artifacts with their shovels and state-of-the-art metal detectors at hand. The crew negotiate with land owners for permission to dig and unearth valuable artifacts which they sell for a substantial profit to collectors.
This is an unscripted real-life treasure hunt, where the team digs at battlefields and historic sites to strike it rich and capitalize on American history. The team is comprised of recovery expert Rue Shumate, battlefield historian Bob Buttafuso, Ric’s wife Tia who manages the business and their 25-year-old son Giuseppe, the ‘muscle’ and tech support of the operation.
Catch the modern day archeologists on AMERICAN DIGGER every afternoon at 1PM, only on Discovery Channel.
