I’m always interested in new finds books. Many general ones are quite disappointing but this one looks significantly better than the rest. Just released (Oct 21) by Greenlight Publishing there are 320 pages covering 1700 artefacts. The detailed line drawings are very clear with side profiles, etc. where required.

Contents include: Mounts • Horse Harness fittings • Religious Objects • Axes, Spears, Knives & Daggers • Tools & Instruments • Vessels and Receptacles • Jewellery and Fasteners • Personal Objects • Weights • Keys & Padlocks • Militaria • Miscellaneous

It’s £25 with free P&P. If I get a copy I’ll do a review :thumbsup:

Just ordered mine as I bought another book detecting related, always handy to have some reference books to ID those finds we all dig up that we know we've seen before but cant give an ID for.

Like this odd item (below) that I knew id seen before, scratching my head :pulling hair out: got out some books out and low and behold found the blighter, an early medieval bridle bit, not only that, it was nice to refresh the memory on some other items

The internet and PAS is great but a good book is hard to beat

I have the Brian Read identifying metal artefacts book which is very good and recommended.
