The archaeological evidence shows how travel has changed over the centuries.
Simple earthworks have developed into modern cuttings and tunnels; fords have been superseded by bridges of all kinds;the buildings associated with road travel are no longer wayside inns and tollhouses, but car plants and service stations; simple milestones have developed into a plethora of modern street furniture; and horse transport have been replaced by trolley buses, trams and buses.
This authoritative yet elegantly written survey is the long-awaited companion volume to the author's 'Archaeology of Railways'.
