About this item
Bill Wyman's Treasure Islands is the who, what, when, where, why and how of historical treasures found in Great Britain and Ireland. Since humans first lived on these shores literally millions of things have been buried, thrown away or simply lost. Today many of these items are incredibly valuable, both in monetary terms and as historical artefacts. More than half of the important discoveries over the years have been accidental finds, many with fascinating stories behind them and all adding to our knowledge of life in the past.;Anyone who is interested in finding out more about the exciting discoveries made by amateur and professional archaeologists and what they tell us about the history of the British Isles will find this book a stimulating and entertaining companion. With copious colour and black and white illustrations, detailed maps, time lines, lists of museums and useful organisations, Bill Wyman's Treasure Islands is itself a treasure trove for the beginner or the more experience archaeological explorer.
