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!
