Every year, hundreds of valuable artefacts are discovered by ordinary members of the public. From hoards of Roman gold to tiny Viking spindle whorls, thousands of years of life in Britain are represented in these lost treasures. By exploring how these treasures were created, handled, discarded and ultimately re-discovered, this book reveals our ancestors' lives and beliefs on an intimate, personal scale.
