Ron Kamrowski has written this book to share the experiences of using a metal detector. Most writings of this nature deal with the workings of a metal detector, this work contains actual events to explain that there are literally millions of places to search. Untouched areas abound in the United States where history, although only dating a few centuries, can be discovered in your own backyard
While digging out a new basement near Los Angeles, homeowners accidentally unearth a 3,000-year-old Phoenician altar.
A treasure-hunter in Ohio finds more than he expected, when his metal detector locates an Eastern Mediterranean pendant from 1000 bc.
Two caches of coins minted in Imperial Rome surface along the Ohio River.
A Smithsonian Institution archaeologist excavating a Native American burial mound in Tennessee removes a stone emblazoned with a second century Hebrew inscription.
These are just a few of the dramatic finds described in The Lost Worlds of Ancient America. They confirm that our continent was visited and influenced by visitors from Europe and the Near East hundreds, even thousands of years before its “official” discovery in 1492. As such, this startling, fresh proof of their powerful impact on the pre-Columbian New World offers us a different view of American origins that threatens to re-write mainstream textbooks
Since the appearance of the first commercially available metal detectors in the 1960s, the hobby of metal detecting has developed rapidly and, as the technology has improved, more and more people have become metal detectorists. This is not surprising since metal detecting is an enjoyable and exciting leisure-time pursuit that is accessible to almost everybody, regardless of age or fitness. Moreover, metal detecting need not be an expensive hobby and there is a wide range of metal detectors to suit almost every budget. Contents include how to go about buying your first detector, the principal types of detectors, their advantages and disadvantages and how to use them, how to recover and identify buried objects and clean them, detecting inland, on beaches, and underwater, and the safety precautions required in all three environments, and the law relating to metal detecting, how to research for potential sites, and how to gain the necessary permission to search on private land

A town often becomes a ghost because the economic activity that supported it has failed, or due to natural or human-caused disasters such as a flood, government action, uncontrolled lawlessness, or war. For example, most western ghost towns were once mining towns, built during the booms that began in California in 1849 and continued into the early twentieth century on the promise of profits to be realized from a region’s abundant mineral deposits. As mineral strikes slowed, prospectors and those providing them their goods and services such as merchants, saloon owners, bankers, and prostitutes left homes and businesses. Most left, sometimes so abruptly that towns were often left in a state of suspended animation, with displays still standing in shop windows, bottles and glasses on saloon tables, and the shelves of abandoned cabins lined with pieces of crockery. Calamity and natural disaster created Ghost Towns as well. Thousands fled the area and thousands upon thousands, at times died never able retrieve their hidden fortunes. Now you have the information needed to find those caches, where ONE SINGLE coin could bring as much as $7.9 MILLION DOLLARS. Now do something about your fortunes and put this highly valuable book to work for you in teaching you how to find hidden hoards. J. Hutton Pulitzer is COMMANDER of TreasureForce.

In 1945, US intelligence officers in Manila discovered that the Japanese had hidden large quantities of gold bullion and other looted treasure in the Philippines. President Truman decided to recover the gold but to keep its riches secret. These, combined with Japanese treasure recovered during the US occupation, and with recovered Nazi loot, would create a worldwide American political action fund to fight communism. This ‘Black Gold’ gave Washington virtually limitless, unaccountable funds, providing an asset base to reinforce the treasuries of America’s allies, to bribe political and military leaders, and to manipulate elections in foreign countries for more than fifty years
