Looking for treasure

Présentation du degré 1 de la collectionnite avec détecteur de métaux : un loisir en famille avec un butin sans autre intérêt que son accumulation. La disproportion entre l'utilisation du terme trésor et la réalité des trouvailles démontre que l'activité est motivée par un phantasme entretenu au quotidien.



Ralph Nevils and his daughter Josie, 12, use metal detectors to look for buried treasure, or as was the case on Wednesday along Parker Lane, buried coins and an earring.

Nevils said he and his daughter try to venture somewhere each day, weather permitting, to look for lost items. "This is the perfect thing to get out of the house and get outside."

They use an unobtrusive method to dig up the items they find, and they always have permission from the property owners.

Josie sorts through the items that her and her father found Wednesday. In the last week, the pair has found around 135 coins, and so far this month 300 coins.

After each day of collecting they clean up their finds and keep them in a box as keepsakes.
