Product description

This is a study on the neolithic of the South Downs in Sussex, featuring the unpublished 1920s-1950s excavation archive of John Henry Pull. The Neolithic was a period of prolific activity for the South Downs, when enclosures and monuments were being built, ditches cut, large areas cleared and flint was extracted from the ground. It includes reports from four major areas of flint mining (Blackpatch, Church Hill, Cissbury and Tolmere) largely based on contemporary records and accounts, with comments and observations from Miles Russell. The specialist reports and studies of artefact assemblages are to be published in a separate report.

Review quote

A major "oeuvre" has been revealed and there is much delight in discovering how Pull thought about his sites and their context. Dr Russell has added a valuable general appraisal of the mines in Sussex.'--N James"Antiquity" (01/01/0001)
