The author identifies this period as the decade that archaeology in Britain came of age, when unprecedented amounts were spent on the past and initiatives such as the Treasure Act led to a new democratisation of Britain's heritage.

While preparing for an exhibition in Cardiff museum, the author noticed a remarkable similarity between a carved ivory panel in the collections and another in Liverpool museum. They turned out once to have been hinged together, making a complete diptych, showing the Virgin and child with saints Peter and Paul on one side, and Christ on the Cross with Mary and John on the other. The Cardiff piece is said to have been found at an old house in Llandaf before 1836; the original provenance of the Liverpool one is not known. A laser replica was made of the latter for the exhibition.

Article on the eighteenth-century wilderness pleasure grounds, known as the Hermitage, laid out by John Murray at the Dunkeld Estate in Perthshire. The garden was later enlarged and then fell into decay, aggravated in 1869 when locals protesting a bridge toll blew up Ossian's Hall, the main architectural feature. The garden has been restored, and Ossian's Hall replaced. Amongst discoveries made during the restoration work were unique brick heating ovens and nineteenth-century and Polish Second World War graffiti.

Article on the identification of a rare and still little-understood type of archaeological site dating from 1000--700BC, consisting of large amounts of artefacts and animal bone buried within a layer of blackened earth, sometimes so thick and extensive as to create a small hill. The authors report on the excavation of one such site at Whitchurch in the West Midlands, with evidence for smithing and unexpected quantities of bronze metalwork that includes miniature axeheads.
