Monuments in the Landscape
Landscape archaeology, particularly the archaeology of monuments in the landscape, has made a significant contribution to the development of archaeological thinking in Britain. This book brings together some major studies influenced by these approaches. Prehistory is covered in studies of south-west and southern England, as well as Wales, France and Portugal; Romano-British remains are considered from Salisbury Plain and the Peak District; the medieval period ranges from Sutton Hoo to the Yorkshire Wolds and Carew Castle in Wales; the post-medieval and modern periods take us to the Scottish High-lands and Islands and the Northumberland National Park. What connects them all is an appreciation of the archeological signatures in the landscape as monuments to human endeavor.
