FINDS IDENTIFIED

An illustrated guide to metal detecting and archaeological finds

This beautiful book is possibly the most comprehensive finds identification book ever published.

The Team at the British Museum and the Portable Antiquities Scheme have spent years collating, identifying and photographing finds from the Stone Age through to the 20th century, and for the first time, this book pulls together a selection of the most interesting items in one beautiful volume. Lavishly illustrated with thousands of photographs, this book not only helps to identify the artefacts but puts them in context and offers detailed information on each object.

This book is organised on a thematic basis with similar types of objects being placed together, rather than separated by period. This will allow readers to see how object types changed over time with the introduction of new materials, techniques and styles.
