Description

Sir Robert Atkyns's Ancient and Present State of Glostershire, which appeared in 1712, was the first published survey of the county. Alan Pilbeam's Gloucestershire 300 Years Ago is written to celebrate Atkyns's achievement and to present his information in a more accessible form. Atkyns's work is critically assessed with reference to other sources and used as a basis for comparison with today's landscape. Fully illustrated in both colour and black and white, it includes a gazetteer of places to visit and analysis of the spatial pattern of Atkyns' data. Published to mark with the tercentenary of this important work, Gloucestershire 300 Years Ago is a must-read for anyone interested in the history of the county and in local history more generally.show more
