1 Review
This book examines the history of Hertfordshire from late prehistoric times to the 13th century. It looks at the origins of the county and the early evolution of its landscape, and emphasizes the surprising extent of continuity in structures of territorial organization from the Roman period to the time of the Norman Conquest. Both archaeological and documentary sources are employed to throw new light on the history of this neglected county.
