Barrows in the Peak District

ID: 1532 - View Book Page - Edit In OJS

The work of early antiquaries, especially Thomas Bateman, has made the Peak District one of the key areas, along with Wessex and the Yorkshire Wolds, for our understanding of the Neolithic and Early Bronze Age periods in Britain. In this volume, John Barnatt brings together much of this early evidence, both to provide a modern overview and interpretation of the data, and to make the evidence more accessible, with a major corpus of the barrows and their contents. In addition, two recent excavations of Bronze Age sites are presented: Liffs Low and Hognaston.
