Hoards from Wiltshire


In this new book Richard Henry examines ten of the most significant hoards found in Wiltshire.  Through considering these finds in relation to their landscape context and scientific analysis, it is clear these items have much to tell us – from medieval silver coins that reflect a battle for power to Roman saucepans and wine strainers that may suggest ritual consumption at tribal boundaries.  These objects deepen our understanding of the people who used and deposited them as well as the history of the county as a whole.
