Mike Arbuthnot

Mike is an archaeologist with a commanding presence and 14 years of underwater and terrestrial field experience under his belt. He is fascinated with learning what ancient cultures can teach us about ourselves. Whether diving 12,600 feet to examine the Titanic wreckage with James Cameron, or using carbon-14 dating to uncover the hidden past in his home state of Florida, Mike uses his expertise to analyze unexplained artifacts and mysteries connected to eras gone by.

In his role on Found, Mike is predominantly the “lab” guy, frequently collaborating with the rest of the team on what tests to run on artifacts and what resources to tap to find the answers people seek. Mike has always loved mysteries of the past, and for him, artifacts are the clues.
