Synopsis

Designated a World Heritage Site, the landscape around Avebury in north Wiltshire contains a remarkable wealth of archaeological remains, including some of the most spectacular prehistoric monuments in Europe.



Incorporating extensive research and fieldwork from the last ten years, this is the only book to explore the landscape context of Avebury over six millennia. There is of course a full description and interpretation of the impressive Neolithic monuments within the immediate area (including the Avebury henge itself), but the authors range far wider in both space and time. Extending from early prehistory, through the Roman occupation, to the Anglo-Saxon and later medieval periods, their comprehensive study works through a series of interrelated themes such as histories of occupation, the modification of the landscape and the changing perceptions of past populations.



Both authors have worked for ten years on large-scale field projects in the Avebury region. Joshua Pollard, Reader in Archaeology at the University of Bristol, has been involved in the excavation and publication of major Neolithic sites around Avebury, including the Beckhampton Avenue (rediscovered in 1999).



Andrew Reynolds, Reader in Medieval Archaeology at the Institute of Archaeology, UCL, had directed research excavation and fieldwork in the Avebury region since 1991, concentration on the post-Roman, Anglo-Saxon and medieval archaeology of the area. He is the author of Later Anglo-Saxon England (The History Press)
