On the back cover:

Michael Cuddeford’s well illustrated book is the only single volume aid ‘in print’ to the identification of metallic small finds from the Bronze Age to recent times.

For the amateur (and even at times for the professional) it is often simpler to decide the function of a find than it is to put a date to it. For the most part the organisation of this book into functional categories, themselves sequenced alphabetically, minimises the time taken to find a close parallel for an object. In this way its purpose is fulfilled, but for those seeking more comprehensive information, a select bibliography of more than fifty detailed references is provided.

This is the second edition and carries only minor revisions and corrections to the text. It will be welcomed as a primary reference by students of archaeology, museum curators, metal detector users and antiquity collectors.
