This wooden jigsaw puzzle features a 1912 painting by British painter Spencer Gore, of The Icknield Way, an ancient road in England that runs from Norfolk to Wiltshire. The puzzle design features whimsies themed to British travelers from ancient times to present, and irregular pentagonal pieces, all designed by puzzle artist Tara Flannery. This puzzle has a straight edge and average difficulty. Like all our puzzles, laser-cut from quarter-inch thick wood. Packaged in a pine wood box with sliding lid. Made in USA.
Review: Doing this puzzle is like diving into swirls of creamy blueberry, peach, raspberry, strawberry and mango yoghurts. It's a very sensuous experience, and along the way (no pun intended?) you discover some fun whimsies about the prehistorical times. It's the first puzzle that made me check Wikipedia as soon as I finished it. What is so great about this puzzle: it may be an escapist/indoor activity, but it makes you want to go out and explore the world.
Review: Really enjoyed this one! Beautiful colors and lovely to look at when finished. Cool piece shapes too! The photos on the website don’t do this one justice; it’s definitely prettier in person.
Review: Gorgeous and fun puzzle with excellent whimsies - great choice to do with the family and gave us the chance to learn about the Icknield Way. Thanks for doing it again, Artifact!

Review: Of the ten or so Artifact Puzzles I own, I think I enjoyed this one best - it was just the right amount of challenge (not irritating hard, but definitely not easy) had great soft bright colors, and had an assortment of whimsies that seemed so odd I had to go online and read about Icknield Way to understand them, which was a fun history lesson. I did this a second time with my nieces, and the ten year old enjoyed it and talking about the history, but the younger one was less interested.

Review: I like to work the smaller puzzles without referring to the box. It makes the journey more fun. This particular puzzle lends itself well to that method as the colors literally melt into each other. Without realizing it, I had begun working the puzzle from bottom to top systematically. I thoroughly enjoyed the sunset like hues in this puzzle. It has a variety of shapes, which is my preference, so you never get bored. Definitely put this one on your must-have list
