400 Year Old Church Bells
In 2013, a man from the Czech Republic was digging up his backyard to install some pipes when he stumbled across an unusual metal object. It piqued his curiosity and he decided to start digging. It took him days to dig out, but what he found was worth it.
There were two large church bells about 400 years old laying in his backyard. It turned out that the bells were stolen 11 years earlier from a nearby church and the thief buried them but didn’t come back.
