UNNAO, India (KNOE 8 News/AP) - A Hindu holy man's reported dream has touched off an archaeological treasure hunt in northern India.

Archaeologists are digging beneath a 19th century fort after the holy man said a former king appeared to him and told him of a nearly $50 billion cache.

A survey found evidence of heavy metal about 20 meters underground.
