About this book

This book takes a new approach to writing about the past. Instead of studying the prehistory of Britain from Mesolithic to Iron Age times in terms of periods or artifact classifications, the author examines it through the lens of their geology and landscapes. Granite uplands, rolling chalk downlands, sandstone moorlands, and pebbled hilltops each create their own potentialities and symbolic resources for human settlement and require forms of social engagement.

Taking his findings from years of phenomenological fieldwork experiencing different landscapes with all senses and from many angles, he creates a saturated and historically imaginative account of the landscapes of southern England and the people who inhabited them.
