Trovecy Formula 2.0

Considerations for the Trovecy formula are a theoretical concept that helps locate and find a possible hiding place. It summarizes and evaluates the causes that might have affected the mover.

Before starting a search, the six factors of the hoard formula can be used to evaluate the probability. As a second application, the local testing or “knocking” of a suspected treasure location is possible. From this, conclusions can be drawn which possess a theoretical probability value by assigning the given and fulfilled factors. Factors provided with the value 1.0 provide the following information about possible increases in probability:

Recognition (marker)

If traditional information and clues can be obtained in written and/or oral form, a higher level of substantial knowledge can be assumed. Therefore, this factor “Historical traditions” (sources) with the value 2.0 is considered.

Function and Application of the Treasure Formula The Trovecy formula gives a maximum of 7.0 to assess a potential treasury location. The values ​​in whole numbers promise a greater chance of success with increasing height. The differentiation of the six main factors can be extended to single digits and additional points to the decimal range. More precise questions and source checks lead to surcharges or discounts behind the decimal point in the tenth range.

Modifications, extensions and specifications

The general verification of all available information is assigned a quality factor. It strengthens or weakens the main factor, and double verification from demonstrably different sources generally adds up to 0.2.

Otherwise, the following specifications affect the value to be introduced and change it up or down:

0.2 Partial or permanent access need
0.1 Size, weight, texture and material of the alleged treasure
0.1 Construction and building architecture during the search for a hiding place (wood, stone)
0.1 Accessibility and removal of spoil
0.1 Land ownership and management

0.2 change of traffic route after the suspected time of hiding
0.2 Given the means of transport and transport
0.1 Meaningfulness of the hiding place (weapons, methods of payment, stolen goods)

0.2 Terrain reshaping by human hand (reservoir, river straightening, mining)
0.1 Vegetation changes
0.1 Erosion
0.1 Water and moisture (rotting, decomposition, runoff)

Recognition (marker)
0.1 Vegetation changes
0.1 Terrain reshaping by human hand (reservoir, river straightening, mining)
0.1 Land conversion (arable land, building land, public green areas, landscaped forests)

0.2 Warlike conflicts
0.1 Meteorological disasters (flood, gale-force storms)
0.1 Earthquake
0.1 Big fire
0.1 Treasury replacements may be due to external factors and / or coercion

Historical traditions (sources)
0,2 Certified in official and / or clerical form
0.1 Oral details (residents, relatives, acquaintances, neighbors)
0.1 Number of independent historical mentions (greater / less than five)
0.1 Scientific sources

With the extended values ​​in the decimal range, the maximum value of the Trovecy formula at maximum precision reaches exactly 10.0 instead of 7.0. In addition, up to 1.4 surcharges by possible double verifications.

Source Procurement and Assessment The applicability of the Trovecy formula requires extensive data and information gathering. Apart from the meaningfulness of the Schatzformel in the evaluation, it serves as a perfect guide or as a checklist before and during the search. If each weighted formula factor is considered a single point, the search may also result in directions that would otherwise be overlooked. Too young vegetation is not suitable as a marker and formerly underwater lake bottom and river beds were not accessible. With all theoretical help, common sense should never be forgotten
