Handbook of Treasure Signs & Symbols
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
In all cultures, mysteries, symbols, and signs borrow from vision, experience, and religion. Strung together, they create a picture or message, the building blocks of communication. If understood, they can guide an attentive hunter to a long-hidden treasure! Ninety percent of the work involved in finding a treasure cache is research. Anything else and the recovery is nothing but pure luck. You must think like the person who buried it in the first place. Concealment is a matter of secrecy and camouflaging. The message-writer used symbols to describe his/her own identity or that of the treasure, navigational directions, landmarks, distance, or even superstitions involved with the trove. Carson has unearthed all manners of hidden messaging. Info-packed and filled with excellent illustrations and case studies - the edges of your treasure-hunting braincells will illuminate (the attic light suddenly goes on!). A must-have research tool for those hunting lost & forgotten caches.
