Table of Contents: Page 1 - Page 2

Every city possesses countless hidden treasures waiting to be discovered--ancient artifacts, valuable jewelry, and vintage coins, as well as hundreds of other highly sought-after collectibles. Michael Chaplan, treasure hunter extraordinaire, has written a complete and practical guide to locating, unearthing, and identifying all of those treasures.

The book begins with the basics: where to start an exploration, what equipment to use, what cautions to take, and what legal concerns to keep in mind. It then provides a working knowledge of digs, offers important information on the care of finds, and discusses ways of turning found objects into cash. In addition, an up-to-date resource section provides the novice hunter with useful lists of specialized catalog companies and helpful websites, organizations, 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 artifacts, a weekend explorer in search of adventure, or simply a coach potato in need of something fun to do, you will find that the Urban Treasure Hunter provides the perfect rewarding hobby.
