    From the establishment of Ralegh's fragile settlement at Jamestown in 1607, objects travelled in both directions across the Atlantic between England and its American colonies. This collection of essays in honour of Ivor Noel Hume, the pioneer of such studies, explores the similarities between archaeological sites on both sides of the ocean. Extensively illustrated in colour and black and white, it examines the evidence of wine bottles, pottery, tobacco pipes and jewellery to chart the transmission of material culture.
