Synopsis

Treasure Hunters by Nick Hunter, Charlotte Guillain, Nicola Barber

The Treasure Hunters series examines the quests to find extraordinary and valuable treasures - whether they are in the form of buried gold and jewels, legendary pirate treasure, or items such as sunken ships, and ancient tombs, and lost cities, which can offer us a unique window on to the past. The titles also look at the motives for these searches, and the importance of responsible archaeology: were the treasure hunters driven by personal greed or glory, or did they embark on their quest with a historical interest and a desire to preserve the lost treasures? The series provides a cross-curricular mix of science & technology and history & civilizations, with a fun, dramatic approach.
