Product description

This text is a comprehensive introduction to all the archaeological periods covering Britain from early prehistory to the industrial revolution. It provides a one-stop textbook for the entire archaeology of Britain and reflects the most recent developments in archaeology both as a field subject and as an academic discipline. The chapters are organized in chronological order; followed by two-level bibliographies, the first providing core reading material, the second a more detailed guide to the subject area; and illustrated with photographs, maps, graphs and tables. This collection is reading for undergraduates in archaeology, and all those interested in British archaeology, history and geography.
