Hi, I’m David Villanueva, treasure hunter and writer. You may have seen my articles in Treasure Hunting or Searcher magazines or even read one or two of my books. I have been metal detecting in the UK for just about 40 years and have made some really good finds. Since the 1997 Treasure Act, I have had no less than nine reportable finds: a medieval ring brooch, three Iron Age gold coin caches, a medieval gold ring, a Roman silver and gold ring, a Saxon gold pendant, a seventeenth century gold ring and a Bronze Age founders cache. I put my success down to getting out and searching, research and dowsing. I enjoy writing and have had over two-dozen articles and ten books published. So what I would like to do here is to publish plenty of treasure hunting tips and articles to help you become more successful and if you would like me to cover any particular topic, please let me know and I’ll do my best. I’d love to hear about your own successes too.
