Product description

Transactions of the Essex Archaeological Society VOL.25 Part 1 - This is a record of Archaeological Digs that took place in 1955 throughout the County of Essex. This Volume features predominantly digs around The Society came into being in a more spacious and a more leisured age; its originally declared objectives were "to furnish facilities for antiquaries and afford opportunities of meeting." For the first fifty years, membership tended to be restricted to the squire, to the gentry in general, and to those memorable figures in 18th and 19th century archaeological studies, the parson-antiquaries: the pursuits of archaeology and local history rested in the hands of a few. For the greater part of the latter half of the 19th century the total subscribing membership of the Society did not rise far above 200, although in the last decade of that century it increased to 300 and then to 350. In the first half of the 20th century, virtually coincident with the second fifty years of the Society, there came a gradual change. This half-century saw the advent and rise of the professional archaeologist, to whom the initiative in research has now largely, though not entirely, passed. In the same period, together with the quiet and imperceptible tide of social revolution in this country, the full extent of which is apparent only in retrospect, there came the general spread of education. These influences jointly brought about a larger potential membership of Societies such as ours, and it is interesting to study our membership figures during this period, for by these the health and fortunes of the Society may be judged. and the surrounding area that took place that year.

The condition of the book is used good with the Cover and spine of the book in good condition, although the edges are showing a little shelf wear. Inside the pages are all in good condition with no damp stains or foxing. Some of the pages are stuck together but not trough damp they seem to be that way from original print and therefore need separating.
