The Salisbury Hoard is the most remarkable hoard of prehistoric metalwork ever found in Britain, but knowledge of it was almost lost as artifacts were scattered by metal-detectorists, dealers, auction houses, and collectors. Thanks to the dogged persistence of I.M. Stead, well over half the hoard has now been recovered and acquired by the British Museum, where it will be displayed as one of the most important finds of the century. This book offers a history and guide of the hoard.
