Excerpt from A Key to English Antiquities: With Special Reference to the Sheffield and Rotherham District

The aim of this book is to bring a great pleasure within the reach of many persons who would never think of themselves as antiquarians. It is a pleasure which appeals to the instinct of the chase within us; for antiquities must be hunted over hill and dale, through highways and byways, and the interest of looking for them is only equalled by the interest of finding them. It is a pleasure which kindles the imagination, and puts us into living touch with the ages long gone by, and makes us realize that in all ages man was still man, and that nothing human is foreign to us. In a country like England, which teems with antiquities, it is a thousand pities that they should not be much more widely used as a means of mental enlargement and delight. The enjoyment of antiquities has too generally been supposed to be the private privilege of the rich and noble. Antiquaries have usually published their books in huge folios, as though they sought to make them useful to as few people as possible. And the study of antiquities is so entirely neglected in our schools that we cannot wonder that people in general take very little interest in them.
