More About the Author

David Villanueva (1951- ) was born in Birmingham, England, where he grew up. In the early 1970s his mother bought him a copy of Ted Fletcher's book A Fortune Under Your Feet, which, together with David's great interest in history inspired him to buy a metal detector and take up treasure hunting as a hobby. Family stories about the origins and history behind David's Spanish surname also spawned the hobby of genealogy. A career move brought David to Whitstable in Kent, England, and it was here that David's love of history research developed into great success both in metal detecting and family history research. A little later David felt the urge to put pen to paper and started writing articles for the two British metal detecting magazines - Treasure Hunting and The Searcher - which have published more than two dozens of David's articles between them. Success in writing articles soon led to David's first book: The Successful Treasure Hunter's Essential Dowsing Manual: How to Easily Develop Your Latent Skills to Find Treasure in Abundance, published in both digital format and paperback. To date, David has written a further nine books in the metal detecting, treasure hunting and family history genres.

I like David's book based on his own experience. It will be useful for metal detectorists to keep on the shelf as a reference point when you need to conserve or restore an item.

Practical book, and easy to read. Anecdotal style. Not too long, or detailed. Useful for people who aren't into the subject proffessionaly.

The book covers just about all one needs to know about cleaning coins etc. It would have been better if a little more deeper on each subject. But for a beginners guide such as myself it is a good buy. I would recommend this title.

This is a nice little book, good for starters.

I realy liked how different techniques are put all together in one booklet. However, it also should be noted that preservation of materials is always a point ofb big discussion. Many of the techniques described here would probably be noted totally unacceptable when used for archaeological preservation and restoration in a Dutch professional archaeological setting, where (for example) preservation of the original surface is thought of als very important.

But altogether, it's great that these methods are collected in this book. Preservation is so much an experiential thing, that often techniques are not written down. Everybody just copies techniques from other and there is a lot of fairy tales about it and hard to find much qualitative literature. Therefore, this booklet sure is a nice addition to ones collection, I think. Very good for hobbyists and profs who are first entering this field of work (like myself)
