Description

From the camps and caves occupied by hunter-gatherer groups visiting the area during the last Ice Age, through the long barrows and camps of the first farmers, to the massive hillforts and enclosures built by Celtic chieftains in the centuries before the Roman Conquest, this book charts the story of Gloucestershires landscape and its inhabitants over a period spanning more than half a million years. Drawing on the results of excavations at familiar landmarks such as King Arthurs Cave, Belas Knap, Hetty Peglers Tump, and Uley Bury, the second edition is fully updated with the results of finds, excavations and research over the last two decades.
