Sources: books page update

The sources: books additional page of this blog, which you can find here, has been updated and enlarged with a new section on medieval jewellery books.

Four rings from the Chalcis treasure dating from 13th-15th century. The Chalcis treasure was buried 
in 1470 in Chalcis, Greece - a Venetian trading post - to save them from the Ottoman Turks. 
The rings are now at the British Museum, London, UK.

  1. Nice bling bling there.

    You should get the exhibition catalogue on the Pritzwalker hoard.

    About a stash of 14th century silver jewellery and dress accesories that was stuffed into the ground in an east german hanseatic town, Pritzwalk, somewhere after 1392.
    It also contains a good overview of comparative treasures found in northern europe.
