Treasures of Ancient Devon

By John Allan and Simon Timms

Devon Books (1996).

ISBN 0 86114 909 2

Prepared by Michael Steer

Devon's history is witnessed by the wealth of artefacts, books, documents and photographs conserved and displayed in museums, archives and libraries throughout the county. This beautifully produced, well written and spectacularly illustrated small book presents a selection of 26 such 'treasures'. The idea that initiated the book arose from a joint Devon County Council- Exeter City Museums exhibition of 'Treasures of Ancient Devon' held at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum, Exeter from December 1996 to February 1997. The exhibition brought together treasures from museums, libraries and archives throughout Devon. At the time of publication, author John Allan was Curator of Antiquities at Exeter City Museums and Simon Timms was Devon County Archeologist. Permission to produce this name index has graciously been given by the publisher.
