Description

The recovery of the various pasts of Britain - prehistoric, Roman, and Saxon - was one of the most remarkable achievements of seventeenth-century scholarship, carried out by some of the most learned men of the age. The Trophies of Time offers the first comprehensive review of the heroic phase of antiquarian studies, when history was being disengaged from fable, and the modern sense of the remote past was being securely established.
