Discovering Prehistoric England
Shire, 2001 - History - 248 pages
This handbook is a comprehensive guide to almost 700 of the best-preserved, most interesting and accessible prehistoric monuments considered worth visiting in England. It spans some 350,000 years and the sites range from caves occupied in the palaeolithic period to the oppida built immediately before the Roman conquest. The sites are arranged by counties in alphabetical order, and instructions for finding them with National Grid references are given throughout. Location maps and some site plans, together with many photographs, complete a detailed guide to the wealth of prehistoric field monuments in England. About the author James Dyer, Series Editor of the Shire Archaeology books, has updated the text for this second edition and provided many new entries. During more than fifty years of involvement in archaeology, he has visited every site in the guide, often on more than one occasion. Other titles for Shire by this author are: Discovering Archaeology in England and Wales Discovering Hillforts of England and Wales (currently out of print)
