The sub-title of the book is "Recent discoveries along the line of the Kennet Valley Sewer Pipeline 1993", and that just about says it all. It discusses the prehistoric discoveries made when a pipe trench was dug close to Silbury Hill and the Beckhampton barrow cemetery, and also Romano-British finds and evidence for the medieval topography.Its "Wessex Archaeology Report No 8". There are 9 b&w photos plus some drawings and plans.The book is really only for University researchers or those who want to collect every single book published on the Avebury area, and I'm sure thats the author's intention. Actual good introductions to "archaeology in the Avebury area", and the prehistoric landscape around, are Caroline Malone's 1989 book "English Heritage Book of Avebury" and Aubrey Burl's new book on Avebury.
