As a young boy, John Webber of Dorchester, England was given a small cup with two faces on it by his grandfather, who was a scrap metal dealer. He didn’t think to investigate the item’s worth - after all, while scrap metal retains some value, it usually won’t land someone a fortune, and Webber simply assumed the cup was made out of a material his grandfather typically worked with, such as bronze or brass.


In 2007, a wooden stand sitting outside the bathrooms of the North Yorkshire, England branch of the ASK pizzeria chain caught the eye of a customer, who decided to photograph and investigate the item. The giltwood carving featured garlands and youths, and while it had gone unnoticed by many, something about it piqued this person’s curiosity.

In 1950, a family purchased a home in Sussex, England from a Sri Lankan tea farmer. The property contained a semi-circular, four-by-eight foot (1.2 x 1.5 meters) granite stone weighing nearly a ton. On its surface, the stone depicted animals such as cows, horses, lions, elephants, and birds, along with flowers and foliage. From thereon out, whenever the family moved, they brought the stone with them.

One day in 2009, Hungarian art historian Gergely Barki put the children’s movie Stuart Little on for his bored daughter, Lola. In the background of the movie set, he noticed a painting that he recognized as a Hungarian avant-garde masterpiece that had been missing since 1928.

Sometime during the 1950’s, a man who owed fare money to English taxi driver Charles Funnell, paid him instead with a strange little pot. Attached to the pot was a card identifying the red and black artifact as “Libyan Pottery” dating back to 3,000 BC that had been discovered sometime between 1894 and 1895 by Professor WM Flinders Petrie.

3. Roman Moratorium Turned Birdbath
In 2006, a resident of Alcester, England named Ray Taylor found a flat, clay bowl in his garden while digging for rhubarb and decided to use it as a bird bath. For the next decade or so, that’s where it remained. When Taylor’s daughter, Rebecca, visited the Roman Alcester Heritage Museum, she noticed several similar items on display, and suggested for her dad to take his makeshift bird bath there to learn more.

When archaeologist and television host James Balme noticed a dirty, old garden ornament for sale in Leicester, England, he had an unexplainable-yet-sneaking suspicion that the item was not just a worthless lawn trinket. He purchased the heavy sandstone block and noticed, after cleaning it, that it contained complex engravings that may represent a form of writing.

In 2016, an antiques expert noticed a unique flower pot as he strolled through the gardens of Blenheim Palace, the Oxfordshire, England birthplace and ancestral home of Sir Winston Churchill.
