Summary: Some are desperate some are fictitious, but they are best treasure hunts in history
Are you interested in hunting for the Holy Grail? Or chasing the ends of the rainbow? Because if you do you are not the first in the long line of treasure hunters; some are legendary and some with names that have been long forgotten by time.
Treasure hunting more often relates to archeology if rather by coincidence. Since most prized treasure artifacts are those that have a tale behind it or somehow carrying a key to unlock a mystery, treasure hunts always include a significant study of archeology. One such treasure hunting figure is Howard Carter, whose finds made him one of the immortal names of treasure hunters.
Welcome to Tutankhamen’s Tomb
Tutankhamen was an unknown pharaoh. Dying before reaching his prime (at the age of 9) Egyptian chronicles nowhere mentioned his name. When Howard Carter discovered his tomb, not only his name was printed in most textbook, much of the ancient Egyptian life was revealed. Tutankhamen’s tomb was the best preserved and most intact pharaoh’s tomb ever found in the Valley of the Kings.
Carter’s greatest find was the gold funerary mask of the boy-king. Now it sits in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. It is by far the best treasure of Egypt.

However, the relation of archeology and treasure hunting is not always true, like the Gold Panning which severely hit the Americas during the Industrial Revolution.
