color. Unsurprisingly, ever since human beings inhabited the islands of Great Britain and Ireland, millions of items have been buried, thrown away, or simply lost; more than half of the most important archaeological discoveries of the past years have been accidental finds. Assembled by Richard Havers and former Rolling Stones bass guitarist Bill Wyman, now an amateur archaeologist, this brightly illustrated volume boasting colorful photos on nearly page highlights the treasures found on British and Irish shores. Coins and jewelry, to be sure, are represented here, but so are the Swan Jewel, a 14th-century livery badge made of white enamel feathers over gold; an ornate 16th-century chalice; and a Roman gladiator's bronze helmet from the 1st century AD. New in new dustjacket.
