Weeknights at 20:00 from 21 October
In small towns, and along America’s back roads, treasures are waiting to be uncovered – valuable relics from history that are hidden in junk piles, buried in barns and stacked in garages. It takes special experts to find these lost artefacts and hopefully turn rust to riches. This series follows two skilled ‘pickers’, Mike Wolfe, owner of Antique Archaeology, and his business partner, Frank Fritz, as they hunt down objects with historical, collectable and pop culture value that have been long forgotten by their owners. Along the way, they meet people whose own stories open a window into American lives and history.
