For AMERICAN TREASURES, airing Tuesdays at 7PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel, professors Dr. Kirk French and Dr. Jason De León travel the country in their trusty pickup truck to investigate everyday Americans’ possessions, kept tucked away in backyards or attics.
In the March 15 episode:
* A Massachusetts couple finds objects in the walls and floorboards of their home, originally built in 1690. Is it coincidence that the house is across the street from the site of the Salem Witch Trials?
* A writer researching his next book thinks he’s uncovered potential evidence of Scottish explorers in America — 100 years before Christopher Columbus.
