Abstract:

"Since humans first lived in Great Britain and Ireland literally millions of items have been buried, thrown away or simply lost. More than half of the important archaeological discoveries over the years have been accidental finds, most with fascinating stories behind them and all adding to our knowledge of life in the past. Bill Wyman's Treasure Islands is a journey of discovery through the historical treasures found on these shores." "In the company of a most unexpected historian we discover when and where finds were made, together with descriptions of the objects and how they came to be there. The legal and archaeological issues around treasure-hunting are also explored, as are the dos and don'ts of identifying prime sites, keeping accurate records and identifying objects." "In this illustrated book, Bill Wyman and Richard Havers have created a treasure trove for the beginner or the more experienced archaeological explorer and for anyone interested in finding out about the exciting discoveries made in the British Isles."--Jacket.
