Description

Even those who live in Essex may be surprised by the richness of the county's prehistoric and Roman heritage, and the number of visible ancient monuments that can be readily seen, as detailed in this book. James Kemble takes the reader on a journey through the deep and rich past of the Essex landscape, using archaeology to uncover the hidden history. He includes aerial photography, fieldwalking, geophysics, metal-detecting and visits to the many sites in Essex and south Suffolk to discover the ways in which the Romans, and those who came before them, left their mark on the county and surrounding area. This book, with its county maps, photographs and detailed gazetteer of the sites and monuments, provides the visitor and historian with an accessible guide from which to conduct their own exploration of Essex.show more
