70-Year-Old Discovers Medieval Well In His Living Room

There are times in life when we are shocked to discover something that was unknown in our midst. In this video, a 70-year-old discovers a medieval well in his living room.

Colin Steer, from Plymouth, found a well in his living room over thirty years ago. He says that he started digging out the well about eleven years ago. He has gotten down 17 feet but is still working towards the bottom of the well. He believes the well could be another five or six feet deep.

Colin contemplates when the well was made and its main purposes for that time period. He says that he would love to find something indicating the age. He has used maps of the area as a resource to understand if it would have been the pump. He teaches that many wells are marked on old maps, but not his. Not only is Colin getting to the bottom of the well literally, but he is also getting to the bottom of it in discovering the history behind it.

Colin shares that his wife is not mad about the well in their living room, but she goes along with it. Colin uses a plank with an open hole to cover the well. He says that he is an amateur archeologist. He found an old ring and an old coin. He has a piece of wood that he would like to be carbon-dated. Colin thinks the well might be from Medieval times because of the sword casing he found. The mystery is intriguing to Colin and also to anyone who watches this clip.

This makes me think about the mysteries of God. Even though we know that He is there just like Colin knows the well is under his house, we do not always understand everything about God. The Lord is the most wonderful mystery to pursue. Keep learning more about Him through the Scriptures every day.

says “Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”
