50 Finds From Warwickshire

Objects From the Portable Antiquities Scheme

Availability: In stock

Since 1997, the Portable Antiquities Scheme has identified and recorded over 27,500 archaeological finds from Warwickshire. These finds include stone implements, metalwork, pottery and glass dating from prehistory to more recent times. They give us a glimpse into aspects of everyday life, including the economy, fashions, migration, trade and home life: all evidence of long-forgotten communities and ways of life.

The character of Warwickshire’s landscape, with the fertile alluvial deposits in the Avon Valley, through to the forests of the Arden and the high lands of North Warwickshire, have influenced how communities have lived, worked and used available resources. The lives of those who have settled in Warwickshire over millennia can be told through what has been left behind. 50 Finds From Warwickshire highlights some of the artefacts recorded through the Portable Antiquities Scheme, giving us an insight into the stories and ways of life of those past communities.
