The Treasure Hunter's Handbook

The Treasure Hunter's Handbook

Who hasn’t dreamed of discovering some immensely valuable piece of buried treasure in a field – and thereby perhaps making a fortune? Brian Grove describes the many different types of treasure that can be found, and where they can be found. There are chapters on:
• Metal Detecting
• Prospecting for Gold
• Dump Hunting
• Beachcombing
• Fossil Hunting
• Wreck Diving.
Uniquely, the book combines essential information on the practicalities of treasure hunting with inspiring stories of people who have found valuable hoards – like Eric Lawes who in 1992 discovered the Hoxne Treasure in Suffolk, and received 1.75 million from the British Museum!
