In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Many treasure hunters read the treasure magazines cover-to-cover, but they don't use a much more profitable - and free - resource:  their local library. This show gives you some valuable tips about what you can find in your local library.

Much more in my book, The Metal Detecting Manual, available only from this site

  • Bud, if I\'m reading your site correctly you work at a hip-hop radio station in Ohio? I don\'t think my show would fit that format. Buzz me at if you like, but I don\'t see what my show could do for you.

  • Luciano - I\\\'ll probably have more guests in the future. Working out the logistics can be a problem, and then editing the interview into a professional-sounding clip is a ton of work. I did an interview for one of my first shows, and it took more time than I usually have to get it \\\"broadcast-ready.\\\" Alan - Historical markers are generally right by the side of the road, but the event didn\\\'t happen right at that point. Maybe out in a field nearby, or even a mile or more away. Sometimes they are placed at \\\"intelligent guesses\\\" as to where an event occurred, or at a place safe for traffic to stop and read the marker. In almost all cases you must get permission to hunt those places. Historical markers are great for giving you a picture of where things happened long ago, and where people may have gathered. They can be clues to broad areas of historical activity, and give you some ideas of large general geography to check out, rather than the one particular point where the marker is located.

  • Found the article to be very simplistic, but also very well organised. Enjoyed it very much, and will take some of this and put it into practice. God bless Peter

  • Thanks, Peter. Oh, and I hope you meant \"simple\" instead of \"simplistic\"!

  • Please, invite some guests. People who would give their ideas and tips to your listeners.
