The Aigina Treasure
Members' price *
Since its arrival at the British Museum in 1891 the Aigina Treasure ã a group of Greek Bronze Age gold jewellery and other objects that is believed to come from the island of Aigina ã has been shrouded in mystery and speculation. The manyuncertainties about the Treasure include its place of origin; whether all the objects are from the same findspot; and whether it should be considered as a homogenous group. Through examination of stylistic elements and comparison with objects fromother collections, the contributors to this volume variously argue for the Treasure�s possible Minoan, Mycenaean, Near Eastern and Egyptian connections.The essays are complemented by a complete catalogue of the Treasure, which incorporates the results of an extensive technological examination and is accompanied by specially taken, beautiful colour photography.
