We’ve all had fantasies about discovering a priceless item, or maybe just loads of cash or gold, while poking around in our backyards. Don’t give up just yet. Below you’ll find 30 people who have discovered some incredibly rare things, from rare fossils to millions of dollars worth of gold. Most of these folks weren’t even looking for anything to begin with! To be sure, some of the finds are a lot less glamorous (the anaconda, for instance), but they all make excellent stories. They’ll also make you wonder what’s *really* buried beneath your home, but in some cases, you’ll probably wish you’d never found out.
