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.

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

HASKO MYSTIC BOARD CIRCA 1940-PARANORMAL INVESTIGATION OF YESTERYEAR

HERE'S A MYSTIC BOARD THAT I JUST RAN ACROSS A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO.  THIS WAS A SEMI POPULAR PARLOR GAME THAT WAS POPULAR IN THE 1920'S-1940'S.  PARKER BROTHERS BOUGHT THIS COMPANY OUT AND PRODUCED THESE BOARDS UP THROUGH AT LEAST THE 1970'S.  THESE BOARDS WERE AN ALLEGED WAY TO CONTACT THE SPIRITS BEFORE THE ADVENT OF THE SPIRIT BOXES AND THE OTHER EQUIPMENT THAT WE HAVE TO TODAY.  SOME PEOPLE ARE FEARFUL TO USE THESE BOARDS.  THE COLONIAL RELIC HUNTER HAS ADVISED ME TO NOT TRY TO USE THIS BOARD AND I THINK I WILL TAKE HIS ADVICE AND STICK WITH THE SPIRIT BOX.-THE THE TIME SEARCHER

WHITE'S V3i METAL DETECTOR: WILL IT PERFORM? WE WILL FIND OUT.

I JUST PICKED UP A WHITE'S SPECTRA V3i metal detector.  The Spectra V3i came out in 2009. White's has always put out good detectors and I have not had a V3i before.  I have used all kinds of metal detectors and I still like to check out different ones.  We have used customized single frequency vlf machines for most of our hunts.  This machine uses three frequencies or just one if you want.  I can't wait to test it out in my coin garden.-The Time Searcher.
