Discovery Channel Series Seeking Heirlooms

Discovery Channel series looking for people who have objects or heirlooms that might have historical significance

Have you uncovered something unique in your attic or backyard? Do you have a family heirloom with an amazing story? 

We are producing a new television series about people who believe they have objects of historical, cultural or scientific importance – an item that is possibly linked to an historic person, place or event. Our hosts, both professors at major universities, hope to help participants and viewers learn about these items and find out if the story behind them is real, as well as ways to preserve artifacts and history. We are looking for people who have not yet taken these objects for authentication or appraisal. 

We are filming across the United States. Our next two episodes will be filmed in Louisiana in mid December and Florida in January.

*Please note: we are not interested in featuring individuals who have obtained artifacts illegally or those who have been involved in the intentional looting or destruction of archaeological sites. We are not interested in featuring individuals whose sole purpose is monetary gain. 

Please email us at archaeologyshow@yahoo.com

Thank you very much. We look forward to hearing from you!
