A stamp issue for Jersey Stamps celebrating a potted history of ancient artefacts that have been unearthed on the Island of Jersey.
Eight artefacts left behind by neolithic settlers, nomadic hunter-gatherer tribes, and the Romans and the Gauls feature on the set. Most famously perhaps, is the gold torque, unearthed in Le Câtillon II Hoard, which contained more golden torques than any other Celtic coin hoard and has also been confirmed as the largest Celtic hoard found in the world. Issued 11 April 2017.
