We reveal ourselves not through what we display but through what we conceal and discard; a rusty trowel, a crooked needle, the hilt of a sword, these are the objects that furnish our lives.

Priceless is not just about obvious treasure, gold and jewels, but also those unexpected, unintended glimpses of the everyday of the ancients. How and where were they found, and by whom? What can we learn about ourselves from looking again at the physical traces of lives lived thousands of years ago?

By unearthing both the epic and the domestic, Neil Oliver is able to piece together an ungilded and awe-inspiring account of Britain and the lives that took place on these shores.

Priceless is a rare treasure map that takes you back in time, showing us the extraordinary collection of artefacts that reveal who we are and where we came from.
