Dorset's Archaeology

£14.99

Product description

Used, very good condition, hard cover with dust jacket.
This book celebrates the rich archaeological heritage of the Dorset landscape which has some of the finest sites in England, including great hillforts such as Maiden Castle, countless barrow cemeteries, spectacular Roman roads and the romantic ruin of Corfe Castle. It introduces archaeology to all who are interested in Dorset's beautiful landscape and reveals some of the fascinating finds that have been discovered by archaeologists during important excavations in the county. But Peter Stanier's main concern is how to observe clues from the past in the landscape, ruins and buildings all around us. The main archaeological field monuments, from grassy mounds to standing buildings, and dating from around 4000 BC until AD 1700, are described in clear and simple terms with many indications of the best sites to visit. This book will be the essential companion to understanding the face of Dorset.
The book is in very good condition, there is some light scratching to the front and back of the dust jacket and a very little bumping to the top corners and the top of the spine. The binding is sound and all the pages are clean and unmarked, it would appear the book has seen very little use. The book contains a large number of black and white photographs and diagrams and has a detailed index, as well as suggestions for further reading on specific areas of interest.
