Editorial Reviews


"...[a] fascinating book....This volume is a great reference resource, a delightful survey for anyone to flip through, and an essential aid to everyone interested in Britain's prehistoric legacy." Choice

"This is a handsomely produced presentation of 140 photgraphs selected from the vast...archives of the Cambridge University Committee for Aerial Photography.... The brief discussions that accompany the aerial photographs are well done. This book has a large number of pluses. The all-important photographs are clearly reproduced, large enough to see detail, and often beautiful. As a collection that demonstrates the great wealth and variety of British prehistoric sites, as well as situating them in their immediate (if modern) landscape, it is unparalleled. The aerial views allow a grasp of site pattern and situation that is difficult to obtain on the ground....the book belongs in the library of every institution concerned with British archaeology or aerial photography." Elizabeth G. Hamilton, Albion

Book Description

This book provides a bird's eye look at the monumental achievements of Britain's earliest inhabitants. Arranged thematically, it illustrates and describes a wide selection of archaeological sites and landscapes dating from between 500,000 years ago and the Roman conquest. Timothy Darvill brings to life many of the familiar sites and monuments that prehistoric communities built, and exposes to view many thousands of sites that simply cannot be seen at ground level. Throughout the book, he makes a unique application of social archaeology to the field of aerial photography.
