    I wonder when the last time someone walked over that bridge, 1800 years ago…200 years ago? I imagine there are likely many gold items in that riverbed if that bridge was standing for at least 300 years.

    There is hundreds more like this in much better condition all over the countryside.

    I think this stuff is only surprising to Americans.

    Europe seems like such a magical land to me. (I know the UK is technically not Europe now, you know what I mean)

    I’ve spent my whole life in Chicago, a city that burned to the ground and was rebuilt in the 20th century. There are no ancient secrets to find.

    I have only ever been to a suburb of Stockholm to play a hockey tournament as a kid so that makes it even more fantastical to me.

    There are just castles everywhere with a guy who works there who knows who was living there in 1485 and what they were up to.

    There are ancient coins in the ground. Europeans with metal detectors find them all the time. In the US people with metal detectors just find beer cans from the 60s and buried guns that were used in homicides in the 80s.

    I wish Tony Robinson would come out and then push in toward the camera, say “and we’ve got 3 days to find out,” then walk away into the sunset.
