Abstract:

"From pre-history to the present day our landscape has been transformed by dramatic human disturbance, triggered by the rise and fall of populations and their need to be fed, housed, and employed. These changes have built-up layers of evidence which today present historians with exciting new insights into land use and rural communities of the past." "The English Rural Landscape shows us how much of the rural past is still visible on the ground if only we choose to dig for it. This book illustrates how we might go about exploring it for ourselves and is set to become the definitive work on the subject for all would-be landscape and local history detectives, professional and amateur alike."--BOOK JACKET.
