The lowlands of the Humber Basin form one of Britain's most extensive wetland areas. This book reveals for the first time the buried ancient landscapes which lie under the peat. It is the result of a ten-year English Heritage funded project, which aimed to identify and explore this archaeology before it was damaged by peat extraction, development and drainage.
