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.

I agree with Gullio's comment very irritating high school know it all boys voice … though the suggestion that he should be shot is a little extreme … just a nice friendly ass kicking would be more appropriate …

Military waste dumped into the ocean. Oil rigs to reefs. ships to reefs and now military and construction equipment to reefs. Well I can make all the same points with shopping carts to reefs. 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?

the video was interesting and quickly reading through the comments are also interesting the way people pick each other apart and pick the video apart looking for faults , insulting each other trying to get one up on each other . It makes it easy to understand why there is so much disturbance and war in the world and in the worlds history when something as simple as some random guys video can create so much controversy

Nov.11th. is a good time to think about the waste of war. Any nation has at the top, people who will not be combatants but they assemble & create the wars. It is the peons who get peed on. Always been that way.

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.

Wow i wonder why the world hates americans??? Hmmm. Probably because they think they own everything and can do whatever the hell they want. How come they dont have to clean up their own crap? Too fat or too lazy??

Actually if you reduce the playback speed to .75, his voice goes into "totally stoned" mode and makes it much more entertaining.

They have to say they don’t know what country minted the coins. Because then the country who minted would sue for the coins back. I’m sure with technology today they could what kind of coins there were.

Check 00:11 and what do we hear? "U S Military Equipment". And what do we see? German Junkers JU 87 dive bombers. I didn't bother to watch anymore. I knew I'd see a bunch of garbage by someone who didn't have the slightest bit of knowledge about the title of this video. Someone who sounds like a teenager who had to google World War Two to know what he was reporting on.
