Buttons and Fasteners 500BC-AD1840

G. Baily

Paperback. 113p, col pls (Greenlight 2004)

This book provides a reference guide to buttons and fasteners which are commony found by chance and by those exploring with metal detectors.
The collection that forms the basis for this study was put together by the author, himself a metal detectorist, with most being of non-military type.
Although examples are described and illustrated from the Bronze Age, Iron Age, Roman, Saxon and Viking, and medieval periods, the majority are from the early modern period, notably the 18th century.
A concise discussion of different types of fasteners and their use in securing garments is accompanied by lots of photographs and the books also includes a recent price guide.
