From Foreword by Guntis Zemitis: “An archaeological objects is not inanimate, if, after disinterring, it has come into the right hands. Quite on the contrary – from an inanimate, material object it becomes a live evidence of the past, bearing its qwn story. Each object is a small piece of the large mosaic that discloses the historical destinies of nations. The catalogue Baltic and Baltic-Finnic Antiquities in the Collection of Turaida Museum Reserve. The 3rd millenium BC – the 1st half of the 13th century demonstrates the objects thet allow to restore the history of one region of Latviaduring the period spanning more then four millenniums. The catalogue is the intermediary in making the artefacts more accessible to both the researcher and the interested persons in Latvia, as well as abroad. Doubtlessly, this will weave yet another new thread in the already rich and oenate history of Turaida region.”
