Q: I've found lots of treasures, but my score isn't very high

Maybe you are not dropping the treasure items in the building.

The aboveground building ("...a wellhouse for a small spring") is where treasures are to be dropped. Once they are dropped there, the score values for those items are added to your score. (Type score to see your score.)
