Finding Treasure in New England - Using ancient and modern technologies
Two Keys to Success Finding Treasure
There are two foundational things you must have and do in order to attain success in treasure hunting: research and proper tools. This book addresses both in depth.
Research, quality research, is of paramount importance in successfully locating and retrieving treasure and other valuables.
We have chronicled hundreds, if not thousands, of places where you can find your treasure trove. Places where others have found some and where perhaps you, using the unique methods this book reveals, will find more.
Four categories of likely sources of treasure which we have researched for you are:
Shipwrecks along the outer Cape and the rocky coast of Maine are what legends are made of. Thousands of ships, and their crews, have met their end on the shifting sands of Cape Cod, for centuries known as the “Graveyard of The Atlantic.” The icy cold waters of the rocky coast of Maine have claimed its share of hapless ships and seamen as well.
Each of these ships and every one of the mariners carried valuables, and in the case of pirates; gold, silver, jewelry, diamonds, rubies etc. These treasures are perhaps the most difficult to recover however, it might be argued, the most rewarding.
A perfect example of this is the locating of the pirate ship Whydah that went down off Cape Cod in an April storm in 1779. Millions have been recovered and million more await salvaging. You might want to visit the wonderful Whydah Pirate Museum on route 28 in Yarmouth or Expebition Whydah on Macmillan Pier across from the ferry terminal in Provincetown, both on Cape Cod.
We are not suggesting you learn to scuba dive to find shipwreck treasures, although of course you can. Rather, while walking on a beach many have found a gold coin or other ancient or modern valuables, without even looking.
Pirate Treasure The words pirates and New England are seldom found in the same sentence. One generally associates the Caribbean and other warmer climes with pirates. One usually can’t imagine pirates wearing earmuffs and heavy jackets for protection against harsh New England winter weather. Yet New England, especially Newport, Rhodes Island, was the pirate capital of the world in the late 1700s and the early 1800s.
Therefore, many pirates, famous and not so famous, have plied the coast of New England for centuries. Who were the pirates of New England? Why were they here? Where might they have left treasure behind and why would they sail away without it? Tales of where the pirates have and may have buried and hidden their loot along with places where some of it has been found, are told in these pages. Has all the treasure been found? Might you find the largest cache of all?
With the help of the tips in this book you very well might.
Gold, Silver, Coins and Jewels were not only buried/hidden by pirates but were hidden by merchant, farmers and regular folk alike all over New England. You might ask why? The answer: banks and other institutions were either; not available in rural places or too far away to conveniently reach by horse and buggy. Perhaps the biggest reason was that many, if not most people in the 18th and 19th centuries did not trust banks.
As a result, many times a person who had secreted their fortune in the cellar of their home’s foundation or in a can buried in the yard, died before telling anyone where their fortune lay.
Hints and suggestions on finding abandoned homes as well as entire abandoned towns are included here.
There’s gold in them thar streams and hills! Yes, gold, silver and valuable gems can be found in some of New England’s many streams, hills, mountains and other locations. You may be surprised how accessible these valuable deposits are. We list the places where you might begin your search and find your own treasure.
You don’t have to travel to Colorado to pan for gold or explore the site of an abandoned goldmine when you can have success and fun doing it right here in New England.
2) Proper Tools
“The right tools can make anyone an expert.” This old adage is no more true than when applied to treasure hunting.
a) We go into great depth explaining how to use Time Tested Treasure Hunting Tools. These tools have been used for centuries; tools that you can buy or make on your own.
Imagine what you might find if you had a simple, low cost or free tool(s), no batteries required, that could point you to such treasures! These century-tested devices are revealed in this book.
b) Modern metal detecting equipment come in many configurations and prices and can add greatly to your success and pleasure hunting for treasure.
