ANGLO-SAXON JEWELLERY
by Ronald Jessup
Published by Shire Publications Ltd., Price 2.25
Reviewed by John Parsons.

This Shire Book production is basically a reprint of Mr Jessup's original classic produced in 1950 (but now out of print). We are indebted to Shire Books for enabling us to see again the excellence of the Anglo-Saxon jewellery, much of which came from Kent.

THE PENGUIN ATLAS OF WORLD HISTORY - Volume One
by Hermann Kinder and Werner Hilgemann
Published by Penguin Books, Price 1.00
Reviewed by Wendy Williams.

A handy and informative guide to world history has recently been introduced into the Penguin Book series. Excellent, clear and colourful maps together with concise information combine to form a most useful reference book. It contains tables of dates and major events, charts showing the structures of ancient societies, maps showing invasions and movement of populations and a good index. The period covered is from the dawn of man to the eve of the French Revolution.

IMPERIAL CHISLEHURST
by Tom Bushell
Published by Barracuda Books Ltd., Price 5.
Reviewed by John Parsons.

Local Kentish Historian Tom Bushell has produced a beautifully bound volume on Chislehurst which will take its place amongst the wealth of local village histories of Kent. The last book on Chislehurst was published as long ago as 1899 so this new work is already long overdue. There are 144 pages and 86 illustrations.
