When it comes to hunting for treasure everyone probably knows that archaelogical digs were the beginning of present-day treasure hunting.
History tells us about such early archaeology digs in Egypt when the goal was to discover mummies and/or riches (usually in the form of gold!).
It was not until later, with more modern technology, that hunting underwater for treasure began. The invention of scuba and other diving gear allowed this pursuit, resulting in salvaging artifacts from shipwrecks.
In even more recent days, technology has allowed divers to access wrecks which were previously inaccessible. Thus, documentaries such as those on the RMS Titanic’s tragedy, have begun to be more available to the public. These films give, in most cases, a behind the scenes take on such underwater salvaging up close and personal. (RMS = Royal Mail Ship)
Now-a-days too, the general public can learn more and more about treasure hunting with or without donning a wetsuit or grabbing a metal detector.
There are many areas “tied” to treasure hunting one can learn about, and some of them are:
- Metal detecting
- Gold prospecting
- Ghost towns
- And more
