From the man behind MudMen (the History Channel's most successful show), this is a guide for those wannabe mudlarks, metal detectorists, fossil hunters and flint finders.
So where to start looking for treasure? Steve Brooker will guide you through looking at your environment, how to go about treasure hunting and what you should target. He also explains about actual finds themselves - everything from coins, buttons, pottery and stone tools through to jewellery, precious gems and fossils.
This book will also be filled with anecdotes and illustrated with images of the collection being assembled for the new Museum of the Thames that the author is co-curating, making it a vital piece of reference.
