Making the subject of prehistoric UK artefacts appeal to the masses is no small feat, yet illustrator Rebecca Strickson has managed to do so with her detailed designs for the latest Royal Mail special stamp issue.

Teaming up with Manchester agency True North, Rebecca’s stamp designs follow a timeline of prehistory. From an ancient ritual 11,000 years old to the Iron Age of around 300 BC, the images depict ambitious building projects and metal working.
