Antiquities & Fossils - 37 result(s)

NOTE: This category also includes Fossils.

Spanning a period of 2 million years from the early Stone Age times through to Medieval, here we have a fine selection of ancient antiquities. The earliest period know by historians as the “Eolithic” period. The word is taken from the Greek word “eos” meaning dawn as in dawn of time, and lithic meaning stone. This was followed by the Palaeolithic Old Stone Age, Mesolithic middle Stone Age, and finally the Neolithic new Stone Age. This was followed by the Bronze Age, Iron Age [Celtic], Greek, Roman, Saxon, Viking, Medieval and so on to the present day. Of course other world periods and cultures are covered such as ancient Chinese, Mesopotamian, Egyptian, Pre Columbian etc. Each period in time had its own distinctive artistic style often influenced by previous cultures and generations which of course usually overlapped each other. Here we have a great selection of ancient artefacts all guaranteed as genuine and mostly of museum quality. In many cases historical provenance is supplied, if known, which you can keep with your purchase.

The craftsmanship of our ancestors is truly astounding and never fails to amaze. We should consider ourselves as custodians of such classical artefacts in our lifetime, to be passed down to future generations to enjoy and treasure, keeping the historical memory alive. On many occasions such items from antiquity have become treasured family heirlooms, and a good financial investment for the future. (Michael Green - dealer at Hemswell)
