Description

A detailed archaeological landscape survey that, like all the best pieces of detective work, investigates hillforts with the combined precision of the microscope and the ability to stand back and view the bigger picture. The authors have collectively spent many decades exploring these historic sites on foot and this book presents the results of their detailed archaeological landscape surveys.
