In the early 18th century, a group of British adventurers stumbled across the remains of an ancient Roman villa on the banks of the Thames, and started digging into it to find out what it was made of.
But that’s not all.
They found gold, silver, copper, copper and iron, and the next year a boat loaded with gold and silver was sailing down the river to the Isle of Wight.
Today the village sits on the Isle’s eastern shore, in what’s known as the Great Isle of St. James.
The treasure was found in 1837, and in 1841 a boat with more than 1,500 gold coins and 2,500 silver ones arrived in London.
The treasure was later discovered by an American ship, the S.S. Discovery.
The British treasure hunt was a national obsession until the mid-20th century.
The American treasure hunt would continue until the early 20th century in the United States.
Now, the Great St. George Treasure Hunt, which has been taking place on the island for two weeks, has its own hashtag.
#GSTHog, in honor of its two weeks.
The hashtag also includes a number of local businesses that will be on site to help the treasure hunters, including local bars and restaurants, a supermarket, and a supermarket with groceries.
The island is the site of the annual Treasure Hunt.
We are very grateful to the citizens of the Isle, the Isle and our sponsors for their cooperation in this unique endeavour.
They have put together a great group of people to help us in this effort and I think they’ve done an excellent job of it.
