5.0 out of 5 stars A marvellous update, 26 May 2009
This review is from: Cornovia: Ancient Sites of Cornwall and Scilly, 4000BC -1000AD (Hardcover)
Craig Weatherhill has updated and combined his two previous books covering the archaeology of Cornwall: Cornovia and Belerion. Craig is, among many things, a skilled surveyor and has recorded a substantial number of the archaeological sites in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly with sketches, notes and details of how to find them. The new edition is in a larger format and is now in colour replete with some marvellous photographs. The book design is also a delight with good quality paper and clear typesetting.
A particular reason to upgrade from the previous editions is the inclusion, I believe uniquely, of photographs by Mike Anders in the West Cornwall section. Mike is a photographer who has specialised in archaeological remains and who uses a technique of raising the camera high above the subject using a special pole. The effect can be seen in the image of Boscawen-un circle where it is much easier to understand the surrounding context.
Even if you have the previous books I think you will greatly enjoy the new edition and I strongly recommend it.
