On The Back Cover:

Gordon Bailey was born in London in 1944, where he lived until moving out to Essex in 1968. At the age of fifteen he was already showing a well-developed interest in history and was to be found at weekends buying and selling coins and small antiques at the East End’s famous Brick Lane Market. Gordon was amongst the earliest pioneers of the hobby of treasure hunting, having bought his first metal detector in 1970.  Since that time he has researched and written numerous articles on the subject, dealing mainly with the identification of finds. Always willing to help promote the hobby, Gordon gives illustrated talks to many out-side clubs and associations besides being a well-known character in the hobby’s own club scene. In-between all this, Gordon still finds time for a spot of metal detecting and has amassed an enviable collection of coins and artefacts from virtually every period of history.
