المنطقة: Mexico

An enthusiastic team of treasure hunters from Mexico were the lucky finders of this treasure chest filled with various valuable old coins. The chest was excavated from the basement inside a residential house.

The small team of hobby treasure hunters are well equipped with different metal detecting instruments. During their research with the Future Series detector Rover C (Future 2003/4) they proceeded in a much professional way. They were using a large checkered plane laying on the ground as orientation for the measure points while scanning with the 3D ground scanner Rover C. In this way they were able to keep exactly the same distance between each measure point which allows to locate the exact position and size of a potential treasure find later.

One of the treasure hunters is using the metal detector Rover C to locate hidden treasures.
Step by step the user of Rover C is scanning the basement of the building to detect the right place where the treasure is buried.

By scanning manually impulse by impulse and line by line in a most precise way, they obtained a much accurate 3D scan image from this area and so were able to locate this important spot. With some control scans over the same place they could confirm this indication in the 3D software and decided to start the excavation at this place.

The copper coins show Cuauhtémoc (also known as Cuauhtemotzin, Guatimozin or Guatemoc) who was an Aztec ruler of the ancient city of Tenochtitlan. Tenochtitlan became the seat of the growing Aztec empire in the 15th century. The ruins of this Aztec city Tenochtitlan are now situated in Mexico City, in Mexico.
