I'm an archaeology student and I bought this book as Mick was cited in one a Landscape lecture as being something of an authority on the subject. He comes from a geological academic background and his first book on the subject was supposed to be the defining text on archaeology and landscape. I bought this book hoping to get an insight into the archaeological view of lndscape and how it relates to the bigger issues of the discipline, however the book did not deliver. It's essentially a picture book with very brief discussions on what is being covered. I'd disagree with the first reviewer in as much that the pictures tend to be of a consistently high quality, it bears keeping in mind that these are aerial photographs, but if you're looking for an academic text on the subject, this is not the one for you.

If you're coming at it from a more casual viewpoint however, then this might suit you better. Lots of good quality pictures of interesting sites accompanied by relatively jargon-free discussion.

The book arrived very promptly and was very well packaged. I live in the country and am surrounded by odd bumps in the fields that I was just not able to interpret - although burial mounds are easy! This is the first book I thought that might be of help, and it is. Great illustrations and easy to understand text. A real find.

Just love this man's understanding of our much raked-over landscape.
He gives the passing populations such life! A great present

One of a series of books that complement the Time Team series which is still enjoyed. Great team of people bringing history into our homes.
