U.S. net H2 is set to uncover some of America’s most interesting artifacts as well of the world’s oldest technologies in United Stuff of America and Ancient Impossible, both premiering this month.

The Leftfield Pictures-produced United Stuff of America reveals the artifacts, objects, and curios hidden away in Americans’ attics and private collections that contribute vital information about the nation’s history. The series – hosted by Rick Harrison (pictured) of History’s Pawn Stars - will premiere June 14 at 10 p.m. EST/PST.

Meanwhile, the Wild Dream Films-made Ancient Impossible explains how many modern technologies were actually developed centuries ago, and will profile ancient items still in use today. The series will debut on June 29 at 10 p.m. EST/PST.

Returning series on H2 include Flight 33 Productions’ America’s Secret Slang (June 14), on the history of common U.S. expressions; Off the Fence Productions and Pow! Entertainment’s Stan Lee’s Superhumans (July 13), in which real people embody super-human characteristics; and Asylum Entertainment’s Ten Things You Don’t Know About (August 23), where host Henry Rollins identifies 10 things viewers didn’t know about iconic American subjects, such as the U.S. flag or the American Revolution.

“We’re doubling down on smart programming with even more series that reveal core history in surprising ways,” said Paul Cabana, SVP and head of programming for H2, in a statement.
