Important Historical Artifacts That Are Still Missing

Updated 28 Jul 2020 275.1k views14 items

Museums are home to collections of relics from around the world, allowing the general public to interact with history. However, many of those relics fail to hold a candle to certain extraordinary artifacts that have gone missing over the years. From ancient reserves to abandoned WWI artifacts, lost treasures are a staple of both fictional and real-life adventures.

Most of the more well-known missing artifacts will likely never get recovered - many were wiped out - but this won't deter relic hunters who continue to search for treasures to this day. All it takes is one new story about rare artifacts found in pawn shops to keep the dream alive.
