Product description

Why are so many people fascinated by treasure? Is it purely a desire for wealth or is it, also, the romantic appeal of tales of lost ancient artifacts? It is certainly true that the stories behind the loss and recovery of a number of ancient treasures read like edge-of-the-seat fiction, somewhere between Indiana Jones and James Bond. In 'Ancient Treasures', you will read fascinating stories of lost hoards, looted archaeological artifacts and sunken treasures.

Author information

Brian Haughton is an author and researcher on the subjects of prehistoric megalithic sites, ancient sacred places and supernatural folklore. His articles have appeared in numerous print and internet publications across the world. Haughton long ago fell for the lure of the ancient world and tales of the supernatural, initially inspired by visiting the Neolithic chambered tombs of the Cotswolds.
