Item description for LIVING ON BURIED TIME by PETER DARRACOTT...
Who hasn't dreamed about combing a beach or rubbish dump and discovering a valuable coin or piece of treasure? Any area that is, or has been, populated by people is a perpetual gold mine and can yield many delightful treasures. They say that one man's rubbish is another man's treasure. Peter Darracott has lived by this clich since he was a small boy when he used to accompany his father on treasure-hunting trips in his home county of Cornwall. Living on Buried Time chronicles Peter's treasure-filled childhood, daring to venture into perilous territories that even the boldest adventurer may not have had to courage to attempt, particularly with the most basic of equipment. From disused rubbish dumps and derelict properties to sandy beaches and rocky coves, Peter and his father made a living from unearthing a plethora of precious and saleable objects, including coins from Spanish shipwrecks and lost jewellery to ceramic jars, pots and glass soda bottles. This book is a fascinating insight into the magical world of treasure-hunting, a book about obsession, excitement and many surprises, all of which is obtained for free. Join Peter and his father in the thrill of the hunt, which will leave the reader longing to grab a spade and metal detector and head for the nearest field, beach or dump.
