He has examined many thousands of early gold objects over more than half a century and shared his research in several books, numerous articles, and through his worldwide teaching and lecturing. He is an elected fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London and former president of the Society of Jewellery Historians. EUR 89.99 Verder winkelen In winkelwagen
