The treasure Alarico hunt begins

Italy through a select group of archaeologists has begun the search for the missing treasure famous Alaric the Visigoth king. Legend has it that Alaric got this treasure after sacking Rome in 410.

According to the legend Alaric was buried with treasure located somewhere between the junction of two rivers in the town of Cosenza, in Calabria in southern Italy. Alaric would rest alongside tons of gold, silver and legendary objects as the Menorah, stolen by visogodos to Rome.

The Nazis tried to find him because Hitler was obsessed with that treasure, so much so that Heinrich Himmler sent along with team of archaeologists in their search, of course without success.

Today the municipality of Cosenza started the adventure and plan to build a museum honoring the history Alaric and the Goths.
