  1. Great book with fantastic illustrations!! Some of the best maps i've seen clearly showing the 'Post Glacial Flooding' after the ice age that created our landscape. All we need is for the academics to realise these were flooded landscapes and mesolithic/neolithic peoples built their sites and monuments around them and we can move archaeology on another 200 years as the findings of Hoare has changed very little!!!

  3. I'm really grateful that you have digitised this. A great resource. I remember as a student poring over this in my first year at Southampton Uni. I'd be interested to know which copy you used?
