Discovered by Josh Gates (Expedition Unknown) & OKM
OKM Expedition to Poland
In September 2022, the OKM team followed the clues of a treasure legend that Josh Gates, discoverer and TV host, and his team had already been following since 2021. With several professional detectors, the OKM experts have travelled to a Polish village near the Baltic Sea to explore selected locations in collaboration with the local archaeologist and a TV show producer.
As the pre-scans revealed prominent structures, there was nothing keeping the Expedition Unknown team from visiting the site. This is how it came about that OKM is also featured in the 11th season of the well-known Discovery Channel TV show Expedition Unknown.

Hollywood was Calling
For OKM, the story began in 2019 in Chwarszczany, Poland. The OKM expert team has joined excavations at the Templar Church and explored the site with 3D ground scanner OKM eXp 6000 and the ground penetrating radar OKM Gepard GPR 3D. In the following months, excavations have been initiated by local archaeologists, until finally in 2021 the US TV network Discovery Channel became involved in the project.
The team behind the show Expedition Unknown, hosted by explorer Josh Gates, came across OKM's blog post about the Templar Church and made contact with us. Further lively exchanges with the local archaeologists finally led to the sensational discovery of the graves in 2021.
During their visit and further research, the Expedition Unknown team discovered many more fascinating clues to numerous impressive sites in the area. One of those legends led the team to the Baltic Sea, this time again with the support of OKM and its professional detectors.
