“Hengwrt Library I am afraid has been too much pillaged to have anything curious in it”.
Walter Davies in a letter to his friend William Owen Pughe in London, 1800.

The post discusses a stucco head discovered at an archaeological site in eastern Afghanistan. It represents a Celtic man, and is believed to have been sculpted from life – in other words, the artist knew a Celtic man who was on-site.
