Product Description


The book is concise, reliable and accessible, and is illustrated with some excellent figures and photographs. It is likely to become an immediate source of reference to those who already know something of the county's archaeology, and a source of inspiration to those wanting to discover more -- Proceedings of the Somerset Archaeology and Natural History Society, 1991

This Guide meets the important criteria of lucidity, portability and reasonable affordability -- Exmoor Review, 1993

From the Author

We lived in Somerset for thirteen years and compiled this guidebook to archaeological sites so that we ourselves could get to know the county and enable other people to do the same. The publisher used a rather stuffy title for the book, but we intended it as a guidebook for anyone interested in going out and visiting ancient sites. We took great care in compiling directions to the sites, information or car parking and facilities such as toilets, and access for less able-bodied visitors. Although the book was published a few years ago, much of the information still holds true, with a few notable exceptions, such as the medieval St Margaret's Leper Hospital at Taunton, which was burnt down by vandals.
