Format: Paperback
Though aimed at the history enthusiast like other 'Objects in Focus' titles rather than academics, this slim volume packs in a surprising amount of detail. The book details the wider context of this incredible Viking silver hoard found near Harrogate, probably buried during the eventful reign of Athelstan. The accompanying photos allow readers a museum level of detail, and it also contains photo-cameo's from other famous hoards in the BM such as the Cuerdale Hoard. It goes onto explain the systems and importance of silver wealth in the Viking age while exploring items of note in the hoard, where a narrative develops. It's not hard to image a Viking raider rotting in the Loire valley's of france with plunder from the local monasteries, fought to a standstill by Frankish forces. They leave for pastures new to the Viking heartlands of Britain - Northumbria. Amassing more wealth, perhaps from tenant farmers, trading or raiding, the conscientious Viking buries his prize. But, he doesn't come back to it - why? And that is the question that surrounds all these incredible hoards. The book highlights the importance of these finds in this context, and in a easily readable format. Very much a must-buy for Viking-Age enthusiasts.

There's nothing not to like. Its short, easy to read, inspiring and the illustrations and photography are excellent. A great book for interested amateurs.

Not exactly what I was looking for. 7 May 2014
By Curucahm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was hoping that this was going to be a standard dig study style book. Although it has numerous photographs there are no 360degree photos of the cup, and no line drawings. Everything has measurements listed for at least one dimension. The coins are well photographed.
