Few realize that gold can be found in Great Britain, and that attempts to exploit native sources have drawn prospectors from ancient Rome to Elizabethan adventurers and current commercial projects in Ireland Scotland and Wales. In Gold: Power and Allure, 11 essays by distinguished specialists tell of the rich and previously untold story of Britain and its relationship with gold, demonstrating the country’s unique golden heritage. Essays include: ’The Gold of Antiquity’ by Kevin Leahy from the Portable Antiquities Scheme; ’London – the World’s Gold Market’ by Timothy Green; and ’Gold, golden, gilded: precious metal on the dining table’ by Philippa Glanville.
