Hi, I’m David Villanueva, metal detectorist, and writer. You may have seen my articles in Treasure Hunting or Searcher magazines or at my website: www.truetreasurebooks.com where I have useful free articles related to metal detecting or treasure hunting. I also have new and previously enjoyed books related to the hobby, for sale. Please have a look, you might find something that does wonders for your hobby – it only takes one good idea. I have metal detected in the UK for over 30 years and have made some really good finds. Since the 1997 Treasure Act, I have had no less than seven reportable finds: a medieval ring brooch, two Iron Age gold coin hoards, a medieval gold ring, a Roman silver and gold ring, a Saxon gold pendant and a seventeenth century gold ring. I put my success down to getting out and searching, research and dowsing. I enjoy writing and have had over two-dozen articles and three books published. So what I would like to do here is to publish plenty of metal detecting tips and articles to help you become more successful and if you would like me to cover any particular topic, please let me know and I’ll do my best. I’d love to hear about your own successes too.
