Prehistoric and Roman Landscapes / edited by Andrew Fleming & Richard Hingley

£10.99

Product description

Publication date: 2007. Condition: Very good. The cover is in very good condition, with just a touch of wear at the corner but otherwise almost as new. Internally the book is in very good condition - clean, tight and unmarked - almost as new. Content: As the essays in this book demonstrate, Prehistoric and Romano-British landscape studies have come a long way since Hoskins, whose work reflected the prevailing 'Celtic' ethnological narrative of Britain before the medieval period. The contributors present a stimulating survey of the subject as it is in the early twenty-first century, and provide some sense of a research frontier where new conceptualisations of 'otherness' and new research techniques are transforming our understanding. 1 1955 and All Thar: Prehistoric Landscapes in The Making by Andrew Fleming 1
