50 Finds From Wiltshire: Objects From the Portable Antiquities Scheme [9781445663142]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Every year around 5,000 archaeological objects from Wiltshire are recorded by the Portable Antiquities Scheme. These finds are made by members of the public and each object on the database has a story to tell. Each is a link between us and the past. Every article was once designed for a purpose, and thought has gone into its construction. 50 Finds from Wiltshire focuses on the stories that these objects can reveal, informing us about civil unrest, wars, religion, trade, the economy, or a unique insight into daily life. The landscape of Wiltshire has been shaped by of thousands of years of human activity, and we can see this history through the archaeology. The lives of those who have shaped the landscape can be told through what they have left behind. When viewing every object in its context, its history is revealed. The objects recorded with the Portable Antiquities Scheme add a new dimension to our understanding of the past.
AUTHOR: Richard Henry is the Finds Liaison Officer for Wiltshire with a specialism in Roman numismatics and artefacts having been involved with the Portable Antiquities Scheme since 2006. He codirects the Past Landscapes project re-evaluating South Wiltshire primarily using PAS data, the project is based at the Salisbury museum.
