The Kaleidoscope Of History

I am struggling at the moment to write up the finds of a metal detectorist who has worked for over thirty years in one parish in England. The finds range from the Stone Age up to the nineteenth century. My difficulty is how to present the data so that it will say something about the history of the area. I keep thinking that there will be some really simple way of doing this that no-one... read more

Fred Goodwill
