The most interesting findings happen to people who least expect it. Just look at that intact, well-preserved Roman mosaic that was accidentally dugout in a vineyard. In contrast, scholars have been investigating the area for decades with no results. Or that guy who found a 4000-year-old statue in his backyard while digging in his own garden.

Posted in ‘Mildly Interesting,’ people worldwide share mildly interesting things they found and took pictures of them. Mostly antique and pictures or furniture of old times, there are also adorable baby animal encounters you don’t want to miss!

“Group of baby Easter Bunnies I found while walking my dog on Easter Sunday (can for reference).”


“I run down an old dirt road. Trash is dumped there. One day I stopped and found a box of money. All envelopes are from different countries all over the world. Most date from the 1700s-1900s. The oldest is a coin from 1621. I’ve got some from countries that no longer exist. I’m still researching.”


“Hummingbird feather! I had never found one before, thought it was neat.”


It might seem okay to keep cool findings like this. But did you know that the Migratory Bird Treaty Act declares any possession of a native bird’s feather is considered illegal, even though you may have found it within your property? This came as a strict regulation after passenger pigeon was hunted to extinction in September 1914 – literally from billions to none – for their feathers.

“This rock I found at the beach when I was seven is full of fossilized shells.”


“I found this carved fox inside a tree stump, in a forest close to my home.”


“We just found this Amazing Amethyst Heart at our New Mine. Santa Rosa Mine, Uruguay.”


“Friend of mine just moved into a new house. Took off all the heating vents to paint them, and this was behind one of them.”


“An old jacket hanging in the woods with a bird’s nest built in the pocket.”


“So, I found a loop of paper attached to my cat’s collar this morning.”


“My friend just found this little statue while digging in his own garden. The archeologists from the museum told him that it is probably from a grave dating back to 3-4000 years ago.”


This specific small carved statue was found in Castell’ Arquato, PC, on a land was not developed. It was later donated to Museum of Parma and according to Italy’s regulations, the friend will be granted a fourth of what the piece of antique is worth for.

“My wife found this tiny skink in our garden, some much needed brightness on a grey, smoky day.”


“I found a book called “THE ANCIENT THIRST TO READ”. It’s actually a flask.”


“I found a tiny house inside of a tree stump.”


“Found photos of my grandmother’s cousin hanging with his buddy (Albert Einstein) while cleaning out a storage locker.”


“Wife found this at a local estate sale; suspect Emma wasn’t happy.”


“I’m a woodturner & found a lovely bowl in a vintage store, made by the guy who inspired me as a kid. On closer inspection I felt the bowl was very familiar, so I flipped through the very book that inspired me, 31 years ago, & there it was!”


“Intact Roman mosaic floor discovered near Verona, Italy.”

The reason why this discovery was amazing was due to how well-preserved the floors are. It was also their first finding after decades of failures excavating the area. The mosaic was still clearly showing colors and patterns, its form still so clear to be assessed and researched. Scholars found out that a Roman village was standing here just a century ago.

“My mom found a baby owl on the porch behind the firewood.”


“We went to the beach to find shark teeth, so when my daughter yelled, “I found teeth!” this was the last thing I was expecting.”


“I used to really like this table I rescued from a dump pile two years ago. Just found the inscription… now I love this table.”
