From the Back Cover:
A real-life story of archaeological detection, leading to a unique prehistoric hoard

The Salisbury Hoard is the most remarkable hoard of prehistoric metalwork ever found in Britain, but knowledge of it was almost lost with artefacts scattered by metal-detectorists, dealers, auction houses and collectors. Thanks, however, to the dogged persistence of Dr Stead well over half the hoard has now been recovered and acquired by the British Museum, where it will be displayed as one of the most important finds of the century.

Ian Stead's first-hand account has been widely hailed as one of the most riveting books on archaeology ever published with fantastic reviews of the hardback. These included:

'The most readable, un-put-downable, archaeological detective story I have ever read...This is a book I warmly recommend to all readers' - Andrew Selkirk, Current Archaeology

'A rattling tale of skulduggery and scholarship which is almost too shocking to be true.' - 'Time Team' Book Club

'A thriller of a book about the discovery, dispersal and recovery (or nearly) of one of the most important prehistoric hoards ever found.' - Prof. Martin Carver, British Museum Magazine

Dr Ian Stead is a Fellow of the British Academy and was, until his recent retirement, Deputy Keeper in the Department of Prehistoric and Romano-British Antiquities at the British Museum. Among many books he is probably best known for his work on Celtic Art in Britain and (with others) Lindow Man - the Body in the Bog.

About the Author:
Stead is an Iron-Age specialist for the British Museum.

Colin Renfrew (Professor Lord Renfrew of Kaimsthorn) is Emeritus Disney Professor and Fellow of the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research at Cambridge University. He is the author and editor of a large number of publications, including Archaeology: Theories, Methods and Practice, with Paul Bahn, which is one of the standard textbooks on the subject.
