Over thousands of years, conflicts, battles and wars have covered the world, nations have fought for supremacy and wealth. Many people lost personal property or buried valuables to protect them from enemies and foreign occupying powers. Some of these ancient treasures and cultural artifacts disappeared deep under the surface over the years.

Today, thanks to technical developments, it is possible to recover those treasures that were believed to have been lost. Metal detectors and ground scanners allow to see into the ground before excavation.

Treasure hunting means more than just digging up gold treasures, silver coins and ancient artifacts. What motives are there for the treasure hunt?

Become part of the great adventure of treasure hunting and find buried treasures of the past!

Following the traces of a myth, discovering a piece of local history or experiencing outdoor adventures – treasure hunting has many motivations. The probably most obvious motive for treasure hunters is probably the result itself: The discovery of hidden or lost artefacts, cultural relics and legendary gold treasures. Discover the fascination of treasure hunting and the challenges it poses to adventurers and knights of fortune.


Treasure Hunting: outdoor adventure with special thrill

Whether in the forest, in deserted places, in ruins or in caves, the search for treasures lures adventurers not only out into nature, but also lets them walk on the traces of the past.

The search for hidden artifacts, secret treasure hiding places and lost relics has a very special fascination: Even the moment the buried object is discovered with the metal detector inspires probe seekers, hobby archaeologists and professional treasure hunters. Finally, digging up the treasure and holding the artifact in one’ s hands gives treasure hunters a very special thrill.

In addition to the joy of being a successful explorer, the legislation on treasure hunts in each country also creates an ultimate thrill. In some countries, the search for treasures requires a permit to be obtained from appropriate authorities such as the responsible archaeological office. This ensures that nature reserves are not destroyed and that finds are expertly salvaged in order not to be lost as historical sources for science and research. The legal situation varies from country to country. The fascination of treasure hunting attracts not only archaeologists, but also numerous hobby treasure hunters.


Experience history: Treasure hunting makes the past accessible

A visit to the museum can be an exciting way of illustrating history. The past becomes even more comprehensible for treasure hunters who discover history by themselves.

During treasure hunting not only the found objects tell their stories, but also the places where artifacts are found: A richly decorated golden relic in the roots of an old tree in a forest, for example, indicates a hiding place from looters – or was it perhaps a holy shrine? Coin finds are indications of trade routes – were they perhaps found in an old trade metropolis or along old trade roads? Remnants of old armour and weapons in a field suggest a battlefield.

Which stories actually revolve around the found treasure objects and treasures depends on the discoverer’s imagination. However, it largely relies on the experience and expertise of the discoverers to place artefacts in their correct historical context after extensive research.


Early exercise creates successful treasure hunters

Even children are fascinated by pirate stories and like scavenger hunts in the garden or parks. Exciting sagas and legends, stories about treasure islands, burial chambers and pyramids, but also detective stories inspire the fantasy and curiosity and encourage your own playful adventures. If this passion is maintained in the youth, you probably won’t be able to avoid adventure video games like Tomb Raider, Assassin’s Creed and World of Warcraft. As an adult you like to return to the fascination of the real treasure hunt, which offers real results.

The challenges of treasure hunting are just as great as the fascination: Researching potential treasures, getting to the bottom of myths, combining clues and practicing patience when searching, these tasks train young and experienced adventurers alike. With these skills and knowledge as well as with the appropriate equipment adventurers become successful treasure hunters.

Treasure hunting today is no longer limited to the use of simple metal sensors. Thanks to various special probes it is possible to scan the ground for cavities such as burial chambers and treasure chests and to distinguish precious metals such as gold and silver from ferrous metals such as artifacts and militaria. Data visualisation via App, wireless data transfer to tablet and smartphone and the visualization of the measured values in video glasses are just some of the special features that prove that detection technology is constantly developing and improving.
