Sir Barrington Windsor Cunliffe taught archaeology in the Universities of Bristol and Southampton and was Professor of European Archaeology at the University of Oxford from 1972 to 2008, thereafter becoming Emeritus Professor. He has excavated widely in Britain (Fishbourne, Bath, Danebury, The occupation of Hengistbury Head dates back to 10,000 BC. Some significant finds from this period have been made at Hengistbury Head. This first period of occupation falls into a period known as the Old Stone Age or Upper Paleolithic period. During most of this time the English channel had yet to be completely flooded and Hengistbury Head lay on the edge of a large river valley ( the river Solent ) with the sea many kilometres distant beyond the chalk ridge stretching from the Needles to the Old Harry Rocks (Of course neither of these two structures existed then, they were part of the Chalk ridge). Until the discovery and containment of fire, the succession of ice ages made this area generally too cold for human habitation and visitors were nomadic and occasional. Around the Dorset locality, many finds from the Upper Paleolithic period have been made, but only a few match the quality of those found at Hengistbury Head.

UNREAD COPY with clean, unmarked, firmly bound pages. Jacket remains bright, clean, and glossy. Nice copy! "Hengistbury, a Dorset promontory which just out into the English Channel, was a major port in late prehistoric times. In the last hundred and fifty years before the Roman Conquest of Britain, an extensive and vigorous pattern of trading grew up between Hengistbury (serving the Iron Age communities of Wessex) and the tribes living in Brittany and Normandy. This trade was drastically disrupted by Caesar's campaigns in north-west Gaul in 56 BC. Thereafter, Hengistbury developed as an urban centre with a range of activities, including the minting of coins and the extraction of silver. Professor Cunliffe here puts Hengistbury in a wider perspective than before as one of the most important trading complexes in Iron Age Britain. This original historical interpretation, supported by splended illustrations of grave-goods and other objects (utensils, jewellery, bridle-bits, and coins), will make fascinating reading for both professional and amateur archaeologists.".
