No, the 3 and the 5 discover was made by some people that after some luck and a carefully revision get some ancient things that where very valuables articles of history. The best way in which us can discover something like that is to go in a zone where a culture was and then look carefully at the environment, it is normally the key for most discoveries, like the cave paintings at Altamira and Lascaux that where discovered because some people look carefully at they environment and found the entrance to the caves.
