"American Digger" host Ric Savage visits the TV Replay studio.

On the latest episode of “American Digger" (Wed., 10 p.m. ET on Spike), Ric Savage and his crew headed to Jamestown, Va., in search of colonial relics. But perhaps more exciting than America’s origins was Ric Savage himself!

Savage stopped by the TVReplay studio to chat about his trip and the amazing discovery he and the American Savage crew made: a British cannon from the 1700s.

After a freezing-cold dive, crew member Rue discovered it at the bottom of a lake. The cannon, combined with a glass onion bottle and a grenade fragment, got Ric a whopping $10,000. He called the weapon one of the most important finds in his company’s history.

Watch our interview with Ric above – we talk British accents (he even did one) and, of course, his “Boom Baby!” catchphrase. Indeed, Ric belted his signature catchphrase for us – a priceless find in itself.

“American Digger” airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on Spike.
