Moore spent time traveling in Europe to collect knowledge from dozens of successful searchers to include their advice, in addition to the general knowledge of detectors, coils and recovery he presents.

Filled with hundreds of color photos of incredible finds, European Metal Detecting Guide offers sound advice on finding and recovering all types of coins and artifacts, including the varying European antiquities laws.
