British Museum's Portable Antiques Scheme Finds Identified II

Dress Fittings & Ornaments

An illustrated guide to metal detecting and archaeological finds
by Dr Kevin Leahy and Dr Michael Lewis.

The second book in the Finds Identified series, this volume focuses on dress fittings and ornaments, the most common artefacts found by metal detectorists. Beautifully illustrated, with thousands of photographs of over 1300 artefacts, this book provides an essential guide to identifying metal detecting finds. As with the first book, the objects are organised on a thematic basis, with similar types shown together, allowing you to see how various types of artefacts have evolved through the ages.

It is organised on a thematic basis with similar objects from different ages grouped together, showing how they changed over time and helping you identify its age.

The book is in hardback A4 format with over 300 pages featuring 1300 objects.
