About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1951, this book contains seventy-three pictures of treasures found in Britain - things that have survived from ancient prehistoric times, made with care and made to be beautiful. These discoveries have kept their attraction for us; the prehistoric and modern craftsman speak a common language; much of what was beautiful by ancestral standards remains so to us. Most of the treasures shown are to be seen in England in museums up and down the country. The book arouses enthusiasm in archaeologists; it will also be of special appeal to practising craftsmen and designers. It was compiled by two experts, but not for limited archaeological interests; this book will also be of interest to those with an interest in craftsmanship.
