About

Overview

The agrarian history of Britain begins not with the earliest written documents but with the archaeological evidence marking the advent of the first agriculturalists from the European continent before 3000 BC. This volume surveys this evolution of the man-made landscape over the period of some three millennia before the Roman conquest.
