Ten tantalizing tales of hidden riches.
Dig this: In 1840 a surprised English workman uncovered a 900-year-old Viking treasure. The buried silver hoard contained over 7000 coins!
Not all treasures are found so easily. American treasure hunter Mel Fisher searched the Gulf of Mexico for fifteen years before discovering the wreck of a centuries-old Spanish treasure ship in 1985. That treasure contained over 130,000 silver coins!
Hidden Treasure unearths ten amazing and true treasure stories from across the globe.
From a junkyard in New York to the Valley of the Kings in Egypt, join the hunt for history's most secret and often surprising hiding places.
Complete with a section on tips for true-life treasure hunters, and bursting with Tina Holdcroft's fun and dynamic cartoon-style illustrations, Hidden Treasure will lead any child to countless reading riches.
