From sunken treasures, to deep sea artifacts, these are 10 Unbelievable Discoveries in the South Pacific

5. New Zealand Sunken Treasure
Divers who were cleaning a local harbor were rewarded with an amazing discovery of 868 gold coins! Finders Keepers! The harbor of Wellington has been quite messy lately and many glass bottles, and plastic materials were being removed but they never expected anything like this! They appear to be of high value but no one could figure out exactly why they were thrown away into the harbor. The crew couldn’t tell exactly where they were from and the coins origins are still somewhat of a mystery. After being down there for a long period of time, it’s believed the markings on them eroded. So we guess they won’t be giving them back to the original owner!
4. Vanuatu Skull
Trying to piece together the history of pacific islands can be difficult at times due to the lack of stone structures. Besides the Tongan gate and Easter Island, there really isn’t a ton of evidence on their ancient ancestors. Things that can survive the test of time, are skeletons. This 3,000 year old skull you see in this photo, was separated from the body and placed in an ancient pot. This comes from the Lapita culture who lived on the island of Vanuatu. This civilization inhabited many of the south pacific islands like Samoa, Tonga and all the way to eastern coast of Papua New Guinea Extensive scientific research was done and it’s believed that the Lapita culture are originally descendants from the island of Taiwan. These were found at the bottom of a Cemetery on Efate Island. This discovery also leads archaeologists to conclude that the Lapita were the first settlers of these micro islands
3. Jungle Debris
After all the intense fighting that took place in the South Pacific during world war two, there’s bound to be plenty of scraps from all kinds of military vehicles. People are still making discoveries of all the wreckage that took place between 1941-1945. Here in this photo we see an Imperial Japanese Fighter plane that was shot down during the Battle of Guadalcanal, in the Solomon Islands. Children on the islands still play at the beaches, right next the debris of a Japanese Imperial Navy transport vessel. The islands could be scared for quite some time, even 70 years later. With advancements in drones and aerial technology, they’re able to locate more wreckage than ever before, like this Sherman tank left in the shallow waters of the Northern Mariana Islands.
2. Radiation on Bikini Atoll
Once the USA had captured much land in the South Pacific during world war II from the Japanese, they wanted to continue testing the weapons that won them the war to the absolute limit, and they would do so on their new territory. Bikini Atoll was where the US tested their most devastating weapons like the hydrogen bomb. Castle Bravo was the codename for the dry fuel hydrogen bomb that was detonated and the 2nd most power device ever detonated only behind russia’s tsar bomba. Bikini atoll was the site for 23 nuclear detonations. Researchers from Columbia University in the US recently discovered that the islands are still radioactive and no knows for sure when they’ll be safe to live here.
Chuuk Lagoon
In 1944, there were more than 60 Japanese warships and 200 aircraft that met their watery grave in chuuk lagoon in the South Pacific, located west of Micronesia where an intense battle took place. This was one of Japan’s strategic bases that was wiped out by allied forces. On land, this place looks like a tropical paradise, but below the surface of the water lies the biggest graveyard of ships in the world. Due to its history and the spooky remains, it’s become a popular scuba diving location and left nearly untouched due to fear of bombs going off. It’s been rediscovered in recent years and explorers have had the opportunity to see the devastation. Here in this photo were see a tank covered in barnacles at the bottom of the lagoon. This photo here displays a car that was inside a Japanese ship that sank. Some scuba divers will even come across skulls.

868 gold coins? That's strange there was a robbery there in the early 1900s but there were 3000 gold coins taken, Hmmm sounds like 2132 must have washed away or someone has trouble with their math?

the pacific islands were abused by French and American militaries testing their bombs using the implosion methods. Hence, possibilities of radiation are inherent.

That's the reason the Atlantic Islands are so much cleaner and without any radiation whatsoever ( except for ambient in the atmosphere), even though there are so few of them compared to the Pacific.

I'm thinking about starting one of these channels up, it's quite clear that the facts, credible research or even simply a non aggravating accent/frequency range of commentary are of no boundary when it comes to subscription accumulation. Those facts alone could amaze people and may well feature in my first upload. Mind you they're all very true, that isn't keeping with the formula here.

I had a boss who was a young radioman on a South Pacific atoll. At the end of the war they were ordered to dispose of a lot of gear. The 2.5 ton trucks (deuce and a half) were loaded with material, cranked up, and let go on the beaches to run into deep water (military truck engines could be fitted out with a snorkel; the driver just needed to keep his head above water). One truck went into the water, crossed the atoll, and was seen to climb the coral bar and back into the ocean. The radiomen had a local net they called "the mosquito net". They would discuss the waste of all this material and wonder why we were doing it. One night, after a bitch session, the commanding general of the area came on the net and asked them, "do you want to go home and get a job making new trucks, or do you want do go home and find out you can't get a job building trucks because the market is awash with cheap military surplus?" That and the cost of transporting the trucks home, then the cost of storing them seems to be the main reason so much was dumped.

Yep that seems to be working out real well, Toyota loves building new cars and trucks for the USA. But if America wants some cheap steel, going for rock bottom prices they can always go fish out all the sunken ships and equipment they managed to" mis-place"

Ognjen Mali - New Zealand is an autonomous nation in the southern hemisphere, not a long distance from Australia. Bosnia is just barely able to rule itself in the northern hemisphere, thousands of miles away. What are you? A millennial? Or judging by your name, I'd guess you're one of the low-class (as opposed to an educated) Asian who needs to go back to school.

Clean up your garbage dudes. BTW the people who refused to buy the bulldozers- did it ever occur to anybody they didn't want to bulldoze their beautiful island?

They did this to a whole lot of P-38 fighter planes, just bulldozed them or pushed them into the ocean. The reason was even though they were a top fighter, the P-51 was a lot more easy to maintain as it only had one engine. The P-51 would continue to be used into the Korean War. At any rate, considering the considerable expense to manufacturer anything and get it to a remote island... dumping anything in the ocean that could be reused or repurposed in any kind of way was a huge douche bag asshole thing to do.
