4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, but only a scratch on the surface, 10 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Prehistoric Wiltshire: An Illustrated Guide (Paperback)
The book has two major advantages, it's pretty much up to date and it has suggestions on access to each of the sites that it lists. It could be, and should be, much longer. Each entry is concise and accurate, but could be more detailed and include site specific references. The pictures that are included are good, but more plans would help, for instance showing the relationship of one site in a section to the others. There are a few sites missing (Wansdyke, East Kennett), which it would be good to have in a further edition. The biggest failing is that strictly confines itself to Wiltshire, it's such a good start that a Prehistoric Wessex should be commissioned immediately!

Hi Richard, Thanks for your comments - It had to be concise as the publishers had a specific page count. There are actually quite a number of sites 'missing', we discussed the layout with the museum and the sites contained were what we considered were most likely to be useful to the public. There is an aspiration to publish further work - two layouts present themselves - a complementary text covering all the other sites or an updated version of the current text. I'd be interested in any sites you would like to see as I think the former option is most likely in a year or two. We did not include plans (or a map) as neither were considered qood use of space and would have cost more than the aerial work to source. Anyway - thanks for the good review Richard - always appreciated. (email the publishers with your suggestion on P Wessex - I'm up for the challenge!) Best wishes Bob Clarke
