The Excavation of Maiden Castle Dorset - First Interim Report (1935)

£15.00

Product description

Reprinted 1936 from The Antiquaries Journal, July 1935 (Vol XV, No 3, pp. 265-275) and printed by The University Press, Oxford, this is the first report of the excavation of Maiden Castle, the enormous Iron Age hill fort in Dorset, by the celebrated archaeologist Sir Mortimer Wheeler. Paperback. Brown covers with black lettering. Covers are age-tanned and slightly frayed at the edges. Inside pages are also yellowing with age and faintly mottled in places. Binding is still secure. Contains several fold-out diagrams and also a number of black & white photographic plates.

This is an account of one of the most important archaeological excavations carried out in this country before the Second World War. This hard-to-find document will be of great interest to students of archaeology and local historians.

In the days before 'Time Team', Sir Mortimer Wheeler was one of the first archaeologists to bring archaeology to the wider public through film and TV.
