Talk about our obsession with TROVES. We're loving this story about a random, real life historical discovery. A young boy in Germany has helped recover a very old and very valuable treasure trove.

Back in January, the thirteen-year-old was out in a field in Schaprode when he came upon a silver coin. After reporting it to the office, preservationists descended on the location and unearthed six hundred coins and pieces of silver jewelry. Of those coins, 100 belonged to the Danish King Harald Bluetooth. Yes, that Bluetooth.

Even better, the boy who had a hand in the discovery was allowed to help dig up the area with preservationists.Honesty really does pay off! 

What an adventure! What would you do if you came across a historical treasure in the middle of nowhere? Would you report it or snag the item/s for yourself? Let us know down below!
