Chapters are:

  • accessibly written by experts in the relevant field
  • 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
  • highly illustrated with photographs, maps, graphs and tables.

This collection is essential reading for undergraduates in archaeology, and all those interested in British archaeology, history and geography.
