and promote and extend that study. The present, indeed, may be looked upon as a mirror, in which the history and the events of past times are vividly reflected, and from which they, with those of our own days, may be thrown forward into the dim future so as to shape the course of ages to come. I trust that these brief sketches of a few of the subjects into which the study is divided may be the means of creating in some minds, and of assisting to develop and extend in others, a love for antiquity, and a desire to enter into archæological researches; and I shall hope to follow it with other “half-hours” devoted to other and equally interesting branches. I have, by the aid of numberless. engravings, sought to convey information in a more tangible and lasting form than could be done by description alone. To all who have in this matter aided me in my endeavours I beg to express my thanks.
