One area of treasure hunting that is in bad need of more publicity is the need for research. So few know how to go about doing proper research, and of those few, none are stepping forward with the mission to education young metal detectectorists and treasure hunters.
At this point, we’re launching the Treasure Hunting Research website to bring forward tips and techniques on how to do proper research. It will cover many aspects of research from obtaining initial leads, to vetting unknown authors, to the cost of your time.
As I’ve given several workshops on treasure hunting research, I intend to write a easy-to-understand book on research in 2012.
