A piece from my Archaeocrafts range of archaeology-inspired handcrafted gifts.
The Uffington White Horse in Oxfordshire is believed to date from the Bronze Age or Iron Age, c.1000-550 BCE. Highly stylised, it measures 110m long and is formed from deep trenches filled with crushed white chalk, which are ‘scoured’ clean at regular intervals.
This wooden, hinged box measures 8.5cm x 5cm x5cm and features the Uffington White Horse design in pyrography on its lid. The box is further illustrated with contemporary Iron Age designs found on jewellery and pottery of the time.
