Product Description

Review

'up-to-date and sumptuously illustrated with colour plates (the air photos are especially notable), survey drawings and historic illustrations.' 'The volume benefits from a wealth of excellent survey and interpretative plans, aerial and groundwork photography from the recent fieldwork programme' 'The wonderful body of newly presented data is bound to excite any reader. The numerous splendid plans and maps...are the really striking features of the book, and are breathtaking in their scope and detail.' 'The volume benefits from a wealth of excellent survey and interpretative plans, aerial and ground photography from the recent fieldwork programme ...' 'The book's parameters appear defined for an audience of the interested public. It will certainly provide a useful, attractive entry point for those wishing to learn more about the clearly artificial features they encounter on their walks on Dartmoor.' -- Dave Hooley Medieval Settlement Research, No. 27 (2012)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This guide is a much needed replacement for Jeremy Butler's five volumes of "Dartmoor Atlas of Antiquities" which appear to have become out of print almost as fast as they were published at varying times in the 1990's.

Like Butler, this guide is full of maps and diagrams, including a number of fold out pages, so you don't loose the centre of the map in the gutter of the book. Unlike Butler It is also is full of colour photos throughout the text, of a good quality.

Butler sorts everything by place, but this guide is arranged in three parts, Prehistoric, Medieval and Industrial & Military. This chronological approach is generally more satisfactory, and the scope of the book is wider than the Butler books. Phil Newman is to be congratulated on a first rate book, and English Heritage who published it have produced a quality product in a large format.
The book is in a size which approximates to A4 but is rather less narrow, which is to be preferred on a book rich in illustrations.

Rather bizarrely, there is a two page Summary at the beginning of the book repeated in French and German. Perhaps this relates to some academic or EU need I am unaware of.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book gives a great overview of the visible remains on Dartmoor. It is written with a great feeling for the Moor and contains a great list of further reading to enable the reader to get into a subject in more detail than a book like this is capable of doing. Supported with a great selection of photographs, maps and plans this book is well produced and thought out. Would highly recommend.

This is a fine book, lavishly illustrated with many plans and photos, yet not too technical for the discerning visitor.
