Discovered in Time : Treasures from Early Wales

Description

Here are seventy iconic objects from the Welsh national archaeology collections; together they trace the story of a people and the land we now call Wales. The range sweeps from the teeth of a Neanderthal child to the magnificent mount with the arms of Owain Glyn Dwr. Each object is beautifully illustrated and comes with a detailed description of its significance, what it teaches us and the part it plays in history. This handsome volume also reveals the fascinating process by which historians and archaeologists take the thousands of different objects in a national collection and, from them, build the narrative that is our national - and personal - story. With over a hundred colour illustrations, including imaginative reconstruction drawings and a map showing where each object was found.
