Unbelievable Discoveries in the South Pacific

From sunken treasures, to deep sea artifacts, these are 10 Unbelievable Discoveries in the South Pacific Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 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. 1. 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.

Jesus, at least make an effort dude... it's "MILLION dollar point", and the "locals" you talk about were the joint French and English GOVERNMENT. Americans built Luganville, but as part of the contracts that provided their vehicles they weren't allowed to ship them home where they'd wreck the market so they offered to sell them cheap, but the French and English declined so they drove the whole lot into the sea. Spectacular dive site. That's as far as I watched, I expect the rest was just as bad so later dude.

Hahaha! Isn't it ironic that they left it to rust under the sea instead of helping the poor locals to utilized it but instead turning into a money making spot. Not such a waste anymore, though.

NOTHING at all unbelievable. Some kinda interesting stuff,. But INF about them only barely offered total WASTE of time. Too bad the creators of this video are too lazy to do any work to make it omething worthwhile Obviously they just pateed together snippets of the works of others in hopes of bating enough views to make a few bucks without having to do any real work. Please don't help this leach. Don't watch. It's a waste of your time and helps someone who doesn't deserve it.

Cool video, however, half of these are hardly "unbelievable". Abandoning equipment after war is neither unique to the pacific, nor uniquely American. Also, radiation in Bikini Atoll? Not unbelievable. Maybe a better title would be more appropriate.

How typical of huge nations, just dump everything on these beautiful islands rather than ship it home!!, the Japanese are no better. After the Nuclear tests the USA have cleaned up one side of an island { where they have people living in luxury } while the natives on the other side live in poverty, they do NOTHING for these people, there is no justice and no shaming these Countries
guy rippingale (3 months ago)
the story i heard was that the military commander offered each vehicle to the local chief for a dollar each but knowing the americans werent taking the equipment with them, refused and thought hed get them all for free. so the americans felt teir goodwill was being taken advantage of by a greedy chief and dumped them in the water.

I don't think that's an actual photo of the gold coins. It looks more like an assortment of modern-day US coins. But in any case, I suppose there'd be some sedimentation or coating if they were underwater for any length of time.

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.
