On the back cover:

David Villanueva was born in Birmingham in 1951, grew up in the Midlands and now lives in Kent. In the early 70s his mother bought him a copy of Ted Fletcher's book: A fortune under your feet, which inspired him to buy a metal detector - a Goldfinger BFO - the performance was very poor by current standards but it did find coins and David became hooked. Having long had a keen interest in history David started researching his locality, which led to productive sites to search and to write about in the two British metal detecting magazines - The Searcher and Treasure Hunting - which have published more than twenty of David's articles between them. Following a move to Whitstable in Kent, David took to nearby beaches with his trusty old Pulsedec but quickly found that the machine was not suited to local conditions - the Pulsedec having no discrimination and there being plenty of iron around. Changing to a locally produced C.Scope 1220B, which worked well on the drier parts of the beaches encouraged him to try out some inland sites. He joined a metal detecting club and also gained permission to search a small farm, making all sorts of finds that previously he had only read about in the metal detecting magazines - hammered silver coins for instance. Having long had a keen interest in history David started researching his locality, which led to more productive sites to search and to write about in the metal detecting magazines. Continually delving into local history and gaining search permissions, David suddenly found himself having to report a string of real treasures in the form of caches of Iron Age gold coins and items of Roman, Saxon and Medieval gold and silver jewellery. No less than seven of David's finds were recorded under the treasure act between 1994-200. David also has to maintain a shelf full of trophies he is continually winning at the Swale, search and recovery club.
