I love the interest they manage to create in these little books. It manages to be interesting on every page and i will be buying more of the series. If i had any complaint it is that they are short books.

A well written and very educational book about deserted villages. Perfect for the person who wants to explore the surrounding area around the village and wants to know what all the lumps and bumps are. The book also covers the reason why villages were abandoned. Lots of great air photos and plans adds on to the depth on which this book was written.

Not quite what I was hoping for. This is an academic little book, with some good arial photos and hand drawn 'maps' of what the villages would have looked like. It clearly represents hard work, and I think I was looking for something less dry, possibly even a coffee table type book with many more photos and descriptions of exactly how to find sites and what you see when you get there. I appreciate the authors' hard work, but this isn't quite what I thought it would be.
