Britain's Secret Treasures


Members' price *

  • Britain's Secret Treasures is an official British Museum companion to the ITV series, celebrating extraordinary artefacts found by ordinary members of the public and the secret histories they've revealed. We are pleased to offer this hardback title at the special Museum price of 15 (RRP 20.00).

    Every year, hundreds of valuable artefacts are discovered by ordinary members of the public. From hoards of Roman gold to tiny Viking spindle whorls, thousands of years of life in Britain are represented in these lost treasures.

    By exploring how these treasures were created, handled, discarded and ultimately rediscovered, Britain's Secret Treasures reveals our ancestors' lives and beliefs on an intimate, personal scale.

    Accompanying the ITV series, these are compelling and moving histories that bring each piece to life. Exciting and accessible, and including a chapter from the British Museum on how you can get involved in archaeology too, this book celebrates the rich history of Britain through the belongings our ancestors made, used and treasured.

    The text is accompanied by colour illustrations throughout making this hardback title an ideal coffee table reference guide.
