The Fens of eastern England form a very distinct environment which has produced particular patterns of prehistoric occupation. Dr Francis Pryor, the Director of the Flag Fen Archaeological Trust, gives his own personal account of his discovery and excavation of this now-famous Bronze Age site near Peterborough. In addition to the Bronze Age ditched field systems, the massive timber platform and the avenue of posts with votive deposits, Dr Pryor describes the Neolithic pit grave on the site and the later Iron Age village. This is an updated, expanded and re-illustrated edition of a book first published over 10 years ago.
Francis Pryor and his team have been working in the Peterborough region since 1971. He is the author of many academic reports and popular books, including Farmers in Prehistoric Britain (also for The History Press), Seahenge, Britain BC and Britain AD. He is a regular contributor to Time Team and his own programmes on Channel 4.
Explores the first nine thousand years of life in Britain, from the retreat of the glaciers to the Romans departure. This book traces the settlement of domestic communities, and shows how archaeology enables us to reconstruct the evolution of habits, traditions and customs.
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. This title includes over 250 maps and photographs that changes the way you see your surroundings.
A lively and authoritative investigation into the lives of our ancestors, based on the revolution in the field of Bronze Age archaeology which has been taking place in Norfolk and the Fenlands over the last twenty years, and in which the author has played a central role.
Francis Pryor maintains that early farming in Britain has been largely misunderstood, due to a loss of contact with the countryside and failure to understand prehistoric farming methods. To redress this problem, this book reconstructs the lives of prehistoric farmers, to provide details on crop cultivation and flock management.
