Urban Treasure Hunter by Michael Chaplan
Book DescriptionEvery city possesses countless hidden treasures waiting to be discovered - ancient artefacts, valuable jewellery, vintage coins and antique bottles, as well as hundreds of other highly sought-after collectibles. Unfortunately, few of us know where to look for these artefacts and even fewer know how to go about uncovering them - that is, until now. Michael Chaplan, treasure hunter extraordinaire, has written a complete and practical guide to locating, unearthing and identifying all those treasures waiting to be found in and around any city or town. The book begins by explaining the basics: where to begin an exploration, what equipment to use, what precautions to take and what legal concerns to keep in mind. It then provides a working knowledge of digs - how to understand the anatomy of a park, how to identify relics and how to dig for fragile artefacts such as bottles. It goes on to offer important information on the care of finds and discusses ways of turning found objects into cash. Throughout the book, the author includes true stories of discovered treasures. In addition, an up-to-date resource section provides the novice hunter with useful lists of specialised catalogue companies and helpful websites, organisations, magazines, and books. Treasure hunting is a unique and fascinating pursuit that offers a bit of history, a touch of archaeology and a healthy dose of exercise. Whether you are an avid collector of artefacts, a weekend explorer in search of adventure, or simply a couch potato in need of something fun to do, you will find that THE URBAN TREASURE HUNTER provides the perfect rewarding hobby.
