Product description


I feel sure that the readers of LPS will enjoy this book as much as I did ... At the very least libraries should be urged to acquire it. (Local Population Studies)

This is an 'exceedingly good book', as Mr Kipling might put it ... it moves smoothly from the dim and distant past to the relative clarity of the here and now. (Local Population Studies)

The contributions are all distinguished by up-to-date engagement with the issues and the literature; they are well written and the editing has been painstaking ... a solid platform for any reader keen to grasp the current state of research on British population history and prehistory. (Landscape History)

An inspired idea ... The contributors explain their subject succinctly and lucidly for the benefit of non-specialists ... a coherent and varied survey of the subject, which is up to date and will contain revelations for all readers ... deserves to be widely read and appreciated. (English Historical Review)

Includes much to stimulate and inform future research. (Northern History)

The contributions are well written and excellently coordinated into one by the Editors, to provide an interesting and useful volume with a somewhat different approach. Particularly important are the 'Comment' sections which link the various contributions into a very readable whole. (The Environmentalist)

Perspective is the operative word for this book: it is very fruitful both for pointing up substantive historical issues and for illustrating the respective contributions of so many historical methods from environmental archaeology to demography. (Antiquity)

This is a valuable collection of the latest work and a book that will interest historians as well as geographers and archaeologists. (Contemporary Review)

Immigration is the day's most dangerous and divisive concern, which makes this cool, studious, apolitical little book all the more precious ... if ever you find yourself reading a Daily Mail polemic on immigration and thumping the table uncontrollably, stretch for this volume and restore your sanity with a long view of history. (Country Life)

If anyone is seeking a review of the current state of thinking on the human colonization of Britain...then this book is a must. (Kevin J. Edwards, University of Aberdeen)
