I have been fascinated with the past all my life. Although time travel is not possible (at least, as far as I know), we can still experience it through what I call "relics of the fourth dimension." Namely, as the old saying goes, "time marches on." We can't travel in the fourth dimension, except going forward in the present, but we can follow the trail of the fourth dimension. Along the way, people lose or discard items from their being. These relics are unintentional time capsules that give us as glimpse into their lives. Here on The Time Searchers blog, I will show some relics of the past that I have run across in our present. Sometimes when I am out on a relic hunt with the Colonial Relic Hunter, we know that we are not alone. There is more than just relics at these historical sites. Indeed, it could be said that there is a portal to the past, perhaps to another dimension, where that which once was, still is. A place where the real consorts with the shadows; the present fuses with the past, on Time Searchers: Ghost Relics.

A BIG THRILL-A 1770'S US MARKED REVOLUTIONARY WAR CONTINENTAL ARMY SPADE RELIC SHOVEL DUG UP AT THE LOST COLONIAL VILLAGE


HERE'S A GREAT FIND THAT I MADE TODAY AT THE LOST COLONIAL VILLAGE.  A LOUD CLEAR SIGNAL, DOWN 16 INCHES: A SHOVEL.  I THOUGHT THAT IT WAS  A CIVILIAN COLONIAL ERA SHOVEL.  I WAS SHOCKED WHEN THE COLONIAL RELIC HUNTER WASHED IT OFF AND A US STAMP WAS REVEALED.  THIS WAS ONE OF OUR NATION'S FIRST  ARMY SHOVELS.  IT HAS A UNIQUE TWO PIECE CONSTRUCTION.  A GREAT FIND FROM THE TWILIGHT ZONE THAT WE CALL THE LOST COLONIAL VILLAGE. -THE TIME SEARCHER.

JOLLY HALLOWEEN FROM CIRCA 1910-THE GHOST OF HALLOWEEN PAST FROM THE TIME SEARCHERS

HERE'S A POSTCARD FROM AROUND 1910.  HALLOWEEN HAS ALWAYS BEEN A FUN TIME TO ENJOY THE FALL AND HAVE SOME FRIENDLY SCARES.  I CERTAINLY HOPE THAT CONTINUES IN USA AND OTHER WESTERN COUNTRIES.  WE HAVE BEEN VERY BUSY AND I HAVE NOT HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO POST HERE.  THE COLONIAL RELIC HUNTER HAS BEEN BUSY TOO. WE HOPE TO GET OUT FOR SOME FALL RELIC HUNTS AND HOPE THAT EVERYONE GETS OUT THERE TOO TO FIND SOME UNDISCOVERED RELICS OF THE PAST.-THE TIME SEARCHER.

HUGH HEFFNER TRIBUTE-A MAN WHO LIVED THE DREAM.

IT'S BEEN A BUSY WEEK AND I WAS VERY SADDENED TO HEAR THAT ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE ROLE MODELS, HUGH HEFFNER PASSED AWAY.  HE WAS A GUY THAT REALIZED THAT LIFE SHOULD BE LIVED ENJOYING THE FINER THINGS IN LIFE.  I LOVE THE DOCUMENTARIES ON HIM. HE TOLD HOW HE FOUND HIMSELF IN A DRAB LIFE IN A MARRIAGE THAT HE DIDN'T ENJOY ANYMORE.  HE REALIZED THAT HE HAD TO LIVE HIS DREAMS.  AND UNLIKE MOST, HE ACTUALLY WENT OUT AND DID LIVE HIS DREAMS.  CALL HIM WHAT YOU MAY AND SOME HAVE OVER THE YEARS, HE WAS COOL GUY WHO BUILT AN EMPIRE FOR HIMSELF.  IN HIS LATER YEARS, PLAYBOY SEEMED TAME AND SUBSCRIBERS DROPPED OFF.  HE LATER SOLD OUT PLAYBOY AND PART OF THE DEAL WAS THAT HE WOULD CONTINUE TO LIVE IN THE MANSION.  THE ABOVE LINK IS TO PART ONE OF A SHOW HE PRODUCED IN 1959, PLAYBOY'S PENTHOUSE.  I LIKE THIS PERIOD THE BEST BECAUSE IT MARKED THE RISE OF THE PLAYBOY EMPIRE WITH THE CLUBS AND CASINOS.  HEFF WOULD DRESS IN THE BEST SUITS AND DRIVE THE BEST CARS.  PLAYBOY WAS NOT JUST SOME STAG MAGAZINE.  IT WAS A LIFESTYLE OF STYLE, ELEGHENCE AND ENJOYING THE FINER THINGS IN LIFE.  HE LIVED THE AMERICAN DREAM.   HEFF, WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU AND YOU STILL INSPIRE US.-THE TIME SEARCHER.

STONEHENGE FRAUD-WHAT THEY NEVER TELL ABOUT STONEHENGE

HERE'S A LINK TO A VIDEO THAT I RAN ACROSS REGARDING THE FAMOUS STONEHENGE SITE.  THERE HAS BEEN EXTENSIVE SO-CALLED "RESTORATION" IN THE 20TH CENTURY THAT THE BRITISH AUTHORITIES  NEVER MENTION IN THEIR LITERATURE ON THIS TOURIST ATTRACTION.  WHAT THE VIDEO SHOWS IS THAT STONEHENGE MIGHT NOT HAVE LOOKED LIKE IT LOOKS LIKE NOW.  YOU HAVE TO ALWAYS BE CAREFUL AND NOT ALWAYS TAKE ONE SOURCE AS THE GOSPEL IN RESEARCHING HISTORY. -THE TIME SEARCHER

World War Two United States Bayonet-Relic Find

Here's a relic condition United States Military Bayonet from World War Two.  This item was found on one of our relic hunts.  No, we were not on a World War Two site.  We were at a colonial era site. After World War Two, large numbers of veterans brought equipment home.  Also, we had army surplus stores that had some amazing items that sold World War Two surplus in the 1940's into the 1960's.  Alot of hunters used this equipment in the woods of America in their quest for a successful hunt.  Surplus rifles, knives, field equipment was used.  I believe this bayonet was used and lost by a hunter.  This find really wet our appetite to do some World War Two hunting.-The Time Searcher.

TIMESTALKERS (1987)-WILLIAM DEVANE, LAUREN HUTTON-A TIME SEARCHER RECOMMENDED RELIC MOVIE.

HERE'S A LINK TO WHAT I THINK IS AN UNDERRATED MOVIE STARRING AN UNDERRATED ACTOR, WILLIAM DEVANE.  I ALWAYS ENJOYED HIS FILM WORK AND I WILL DO A FEATURE ON HIM IN THE FUTURE.  THIS POST DEALS WITH HIS FILM "TIMESTALKERS".  THIS FILM CAME OUT TWO YEARS AFTER THE FIRST BACK TO THE FUTURE FILM AND NO IT DID NOT DO THE BOX OFFICE OF BACK TO THE FUTURE.  HOWEVER, AS LONG TIME TIME SEARCHER VIEWERS KNOW (YES, THERE ACTUALLY ARE A FEW), WE DON'T REALLY GET INTO THE MAIN STREAM.  WE LIKE THE ODDBALL GEMS THAT ARE OUT THERE.  WHETHER IT IS RELICS, CARS, METAL DETECTORS OR FILMS.  HERE, WILLIAM DEVANE IS A COLLEGE PROFESSOR WHO'S FAMILY IS TRAGICALLY KILLED IN AN AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT.  DEVANE'S CHARACTER COLLECTS OLD WEST RELICS AND HE IS A RECOGNIZED AUTHORITY ON THEM.  I DON'T WANT TO RUIN THE MOVIE FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT SEEN IT YET.  IT HAS EVERY THING THAT A RELIC HUNTER WOULD WANT IN A FILM.  HISTORY, TIME TRAVEL AND RELICS.-THE TIME SEARCHER

EARLY MOTORING-OHIO, 1913 PEOPLE IN AN OVERLAND TOURING CAR


I LOVE THESE EARLY AUTO PHOTOS.  HERE'S ONE OF AN ELDERLY GENTLEMAN AT THE WHEEL OF WHAT LOOKS LIKE A OVERLAND TOURING CAR.  WHAT'S GREAT ABOUT THIS PHOTO IS THE 1913 OHIO LICENSE PLATE ON THE FRONT OF THE CAR.  IT IS AMAZING TO THINK THAT THIS GENTLEMAN WAS BORN AND GREW UP IN THE HORSE AND BUGGY ERA AND HE LIVE INTO THE AUTOMOBILE ERA WHERE HE IS DRIVING A BIG OVERLAND TOURING CAR IN THE COMPANY OF THREE LADIES.  NOTE THE RIGHT HAND DRIVE ON THE CAR.  A GREAT LOOK BACK TO THE EARLY AUTO ERA.-THE TIME SEARCHER
