Hobbyist metal detectorists “King George” Wyant and his buddy Tim “The Ringmaster” Saylor travel the country looking for lost relics of history. Their enthusiasm is contagious, their humor quirky, and their vocabulary... one of a kind. “KG” and “Ringy” are kids at heart, driven not by money, but the thrill of not knowing what their next dig will unearth. They understand that every item has a story to tell, and Diggers brings history to life through graphics and historical context. They are invited by landowners, historians and archaeologists to go on a quest, and in their own way, a crusade, to unearth history that would have otherwise been forgotten.

KG and Ringy hit the historic Jersey Shore on the hunt for Black Beard's treasure. First, the Diggers head to Cape May, one of the oldest settlements in America. After striking out on the beach, they head inland to Elaine's Bed and Breakfast and find artifacts such as a brass button that could have belonged to a pirate, and an Indian Head penny dating back to 1865. Next, the Diggers travel to Barnegat, N.J., to investigate the site of the historic Revolutionary War's Battle of Cedar Bridge.
