Video: Shed Hunters Find an Ancient Native American Village by Accident

Native American

These shed hunters definitely didn't expect to find this...

One just never knows what they're going to find while spending time in the outdoors, and that's part of the fun of it.

In this particularly cool YouTube video, a husband and wife go out looking for antlers. However, they end up finding something completely unexpected: an ancient, Native American village. It starts off with just a few chippings and arrowheads, but it isn't long before they're finding the remains of houses and even pottery shards!

Finding something like this is even better than seeing it in a museum since you're seeing it firsthand. Seeing the deer in the area, it seems this area was and probably still would be a great hunting ground. It isn't often you find a place like this that's totally untouched by the progress of the modern world. It was amazing how the foundations of houses and the shards of pottery were still there hundreds, or maybe even thousands of years later.

This day may not have been great for shed antlers. But, finding something as cool and old as this Native American village would make anyone's day! Nice finds, guys!
