About this book

Some 250-300 examples of smoke-blackened thatch have been identified in southern England, almost all of them in Devon, and they have provided researchers with their first opportunity to examine full-plant specimens of ancient cereals, legumes and crop weeds, many of which are now rare or extinct in Britain.
