Eight thousand years ago, the jewellery worn by the people of Southeastern Europe was often made of shells. This is the story of the journey of one such piece of jewelry, charting each twist of fate and profiling the people who benefited from the love it held inside it. Ordinary and not so ordinary people come together and are drawn apart in prehistoric Macedonia; they experience greed and envy in Neolithic Thessaly; they create and destroy in pre-Homeric Troy; they risk their lives in the ancient seas; they become merchants in Mesopotamia; they make war in Minoan Crete; they carry out pirate raids in Hittite Asia Minor; they violently infuse Mycenaean civilization into Cyprus; and they turn the wheel of human history until the song of the shells becomes a dirge for unholy human acts. A thrilling journey into our past.
