This book considers a range of antiquarian practices – history-writing, archaeological investigations, works of art, architecture and literature – that emerged in early modern Europe. Challenging the idea of a single 'Renaissance', it assembles essays on local antiquities in Spain, Portugal, France, Britain, Italy, the Netherlands and Poland.
