From our suburban streets which still trace the boundaries of long vanished farms to the Norfolk Broads, formed when medieval peat pits flooded - evidence of man's effect on Britain is everywhere. Packed with over 250 maps and photographs, compellingly written and argued, this highly acclaimed book will permanently change the way you see your surroundings.

Review:

Pryor is that rare combination of a first-rate working archaeologist and a good writer, with the priceless ability of being able to explain complex ideas clearly. This is popular archaeology at its best. ( Times Higher Educational Supplement )

Under his gaze, the land starts to fill with tribes and clans wandering this way and that, leaving traces that can still be seen today... Pryor feels the land rather than simply knowing it (Kathryn Hughes Guardian )

I guarantee you'll enjoy it

( British Archaeology )

Compelling, deeply rewarding and hugely impressive ... pull on your boots and coat, go out into the open (Philip Marsden Sunday Times )

A rollercoaster across a hundred centuries ... Pryor clearly loves this country in the marrow of his bones (Adam Nicholson Scotsman )
