An original and approachable look at the history of an English village as uncovered through its archaeology, surviving architecture, literary records and the surrounding landscape. Seven of the ten chapters begin with a fictional vignette, to bring the story of the village to life. Text-boxes elucidate re-occurring themes and techniques. A fascinating and accessible picture emerges, both of the history of a community and how archaeology can tell the story of the English village. Extensively illustrated in colour including 100 full page images. Mick Aston is well-known from his appearances on Time Team, and his publications such as Micks Archaeology. Chris Gerrard is Professor of Medieval Archaeology at Durham University.
