Jewellery in Ancient Times by Renate Rosenthal hits the £1 shelf in my shop.
Cassell, 1973, Hardback in dust wrapper.
Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Illustrative end papers. From the cover: Jewellery in Ancient Times is the third title in this handsome series for the general reader whose interest in archaeology has been aroused by the growing coverage given the science by television, newspapers, journals and the spate of exhibitions and specialist books of recent years. The series is also designed as an introductory primer for students making archaeology a course subject or, ultimately, a profession. The complete series is intended to be world-wide in its scope, and ranges from pre-history to post-Biblical Roman and Byzantine times.
The art of the jeweller not only bears witness to early craftsmanship, or dress, costume and cultural standards, but as Renate Rosenthals Jewellery in Ancient Times shows, it is an important indication of the trading-empires of the ancient world which were of a size and importance we are only just learning to appreciate.
Published simultaneously with this volume are Introducing Archaeology, Ancient Pottery and Ancient Scrolls.
