The Reliquary and Illustrated Archœologist

Nature volume 57, page 29 | Download Citation



THIS fine volume does credit to British archæology. It is made up of the four quarterly numbers issued this year, and is the most attractively illustrated publication that has come before us for some time. The periodical is, to quote the sub-title, “devoted to the study of the early Pagan and Christian antiquities of Great Britain; mediæval architecture and ecclesiology; th development of the arts and industries of man in the past ages; and the survivals of àncient usages and appliances in the present.” The volume has thus a very comprehensive scope, and it contains articles of interest to every archæologist, numerous critical reviews, and notes on archæology and kindred subjects.
