I use Arcsoft Photostudio 5.5, as originally supplied with the Canon camera, for enhancing my aura photos. I have managed to keep this running on PCs up to and including Windows 7, although it does flash up a compatibility issue message at start-up. I haven’t found that to be a problem as long as I […]

The day I got my hands on a real gold bar

On a recent trip to London, my partner and I visited the Bank of England Museum. The signage wasn’t very clear, or perhaps I should have gone to Specsavers the opticians, and we actually ended up in the Bank of England itself at the first attempt. The security man, in pink frock coat and top […]

Does anyone know how these treasure finding devices are used?

Victor Lewandowski writes: “I am having trouble finding information about the two treasure finding devices I have. I got them from my grandfather who used them probably sometime between 1900 and 1940 in Virginia USA.   They are 2 wood cylinders joined with brass chain. I was told they may contain mercury. From the picture […]

Treasure of Charles I

Another major project of Jimmy Longton’s was locating Charles I treasure in the Firth of Forth,Scotland. Almost everyone knows that Charles I, the only British Monarch to be executed by his subjects, lost his head but very few know that he also lost a vast treasure, not once, but twice!

King John’s Treasure

Continuing Jimmy Longton’s search for treasure… In 1216 King John’s court – contained in several large wagons laden with royal regalia – was crossing the River Wellstream, now part of the Wash, East Anglia. They got caught by the tide and went down in the quicksand. Legend says the remains are still there – somewhere, beyond the […]

NEW BOOK – Tokens and Traders of Kent in the Seventeenth, Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries

​THE PROVINCIAL TOKEN-COINAGECoins traditionally contained the value of the metal they were made from, less a nominal amount for the monarch and mint master and could only be produced by Royal decree. By the sixteenth century the penny and its fractions had been reduced in size by inflation becoming inconveniently small to manufacture and use. […]

Orbs of Light

I get asked many questions about circles (spheres) of light or orbs some of which I can answer and some I can’t.
