The author of Hidden History offers a fascinating tour through centuries of buried riches, stolen artifacts, and other true tales of treasure. The allure of treasure has captivated people for centuries. But is it purely a desire for wealth that draws us to tales of hidden riches, or is it also the romantic appeal of uncovering lost ancient artifacts? The stories behind the loss and recovery of ancient treasures often read like historical suspense fiction. In Ancient Treasures, readers discover the true histories of lost hoards, looted archaeological artifacts, and sunken treasures, including: The Sevso Treasure, a hoard of large silver vessels from the late Roman Empire—estimated to be worth $200 million—looted in the 1970s and sold on the black market. The Amber Room, a chamber decoration of amber panels backed with gold leaf and mirrors, stolen by the Nazis in 1941 and brought to the castle at Königsberg in Russia, from which it disappeared. The fabulous wealth of Roman and Viking hoards buried in the ground for safekeeping, only to be unearthed centuries later by humble metal detectorists. The wrecks of the Spanish treasure fleets, whose New World plunder has been the target of elaborate salvage attempts by modern treasure hunters

From aerial survey to zoology, Part I of this two-part encyclopedia covers all aspects of underwater archeology, treasure hunting and salvaging. For example, entries are included for different types of artifacts, notable treasure hunters, the various salvaging equipment, and techniques in mapping and excavating. Part II covers the shipwrecks themselves, dividing them into 13 geographical categories. Beginning with the northernmost category (Canada) and ending with the southernmost (South America), every known shipwreck--both identified and unidentified--receives an entry in alphabetical order under its appropriate geographical category. Entries are by name, such as Andrea Gail, Titanic, and Queen Ann's Revenge. Unidentified is used when a shipwreck's name remains unknown. Entries give the nationality (e.g., Spanish, British, American), type (schooner, frigate, brig are three), function (examples: slave transportation, piracy, fishing), location and history of the shipwreck.

This novel is not the typical story about a sunken treasure hunt conducted by a cadre of experienced and adventurous men seeking their fortunes under the sea. These four men were "just regular guys" with no knowledge whatsoever of underwater treasure hunting with its many pitfalls and perils. These were close friends, who had finally reached a point in their rather tedious and somewhat boring lives, where they wanted to do something daring and exciting and, at the same time, provide them with a rare opportunity to become fabulously rich. In a determined effort to keep their activities a total secret from everyone, a thick layer of intrigue caused them many unnecessary hardships and almost turned each of them against the others. Unfortunately, some of their earlier important decisions were totally misguided, and they eventually learned that doing the right thing is always the best way to go. This story is about the day-to-day experiences of those men and how they were able to overcome each of the obstacles they encountered to finally reach a fair and successful conclusion.
