Bronze Age

By Moira Butterfield

  • Hardback
  • £12.99

What can artefacts from the past tell us about the people who lived way back when?

What's the first Bronze Age object you can think of? The Moel Hebog shield or the beautiful gold Mold Cape? Did you know that thousands more bronze, gold, pottery, bone and wooden objects have been found from this prehistoric time in human history? All of these objects can tell us a lot about ancient people. We know about the animals they kept from burials of animal bones. We know about the tools they used from axes, swords and arrowheads that have been found, and we know about their everyday life and culture from the remains of the homes they lived in, objects dug out of graves, the boats they built and the sacred objects they threw into lakes and rivers. All over Britain, Bronze Age artefacts have been Found!. Uncover the stories of thirteen incredible finds, what they can tell us about life back then and how they might relate to your life today.

Found! is a series of six books that span British archaeological finds from the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages, Roman Britain, the Viking Age and the Anglo Saxons. Ideal for readers aged 9+ studying history topics at Key Stage 2.

Biographical Notes

I have been writing for many years in a number of different genres, from books for babies up to books for 11 year-olds plus. I like to try new things and tackle new subjects, so I don't limit myself to one type of book. One month I might be writing about history, and the next month I might be creating an imaginary story. Examples of my work have been selected for national Key Stage study in the UK, and in the USA I was commended by the Library of Congress for my work in non-fiction, which they felt encouraged reluctant readers. I work with visuals always in mind, and love the challenge of getting across information or an exciting story with good graphics to back it up. Lately I have been blogging about the craft of writing, and I've also appeared at National Book Festivals, which I think of as the most challenging thing of all to do! I get a lot of emails from children around the world, inspired by one of my books they have read, and that gives me great pleasure.
