Ancestors in the Landscape: A Quest for the Roots of England's Largest County

By Howard M Beck

Environment & nature, General non-fiction | Paperback, eBook


The past? If only we knew more than we do. If we could time-travel imagine what knowledge we might accrue and learn about our distant ancestors. But then, what would we do with all those out of work archaeologists and museum curators? A wild dream, yes of course. And so, lacking the help of Dr Who or Star Trek technology, we shall, then, for the moment confine ourselves to the rational world. Rather than offering a crash course in time-travelling, instead the reader must make do with this — I hope — informative little book. Dig into some real history exposing the roots of England’s largest county. Using Ancestors in the Landscape I shall seek to unearth what we know of our lengthy and colourful past, from it’s far, mist-shrouded beginnings in the early Stone Age, up until the arrival of the Normans under Duke William of Normandy in 1066.
