Wessex to 1000 AD Paperback
Part of the Regional History of England S. series
Wessex -- the ancient counties of Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire, Hampshire and Berkshire -- is remarkable for its economic and social cohesion as a region, and for the extraordinary wealth of its ancient remains.
In this authoritative survey, Barry Cunliffe sets the great monuments and famous sites in their full cultural context.
His chief concern, however, is to interpret the landscape of the region, and the people who over so many centuries created it.
In his hands it becomes an archaeological artefact as eloquent as Avebury and Stonehenge themselves.
