Media reviews

A tale of fascinating complexity and diversity ... The beauty of this book is the way in which it begins to dig out the regionality of landscapes, even where they appear to have so much in common. Its high standard points the way ahead for treatments of the other pays of Roman Britain ... It is refreshing to have the British evidence explored in a wider European context and the author deserves our congratulations for this very fine book. Britannia Cleary structured, well written and informative. The reviews of the various archaeological periods are packed with useful references ... This work will provide a valuable resource for a number of different academic disciplines, including wetland archaeology, palaeoecology and, more specifically, sea-level history. The work will also be of considerable use to conservation managers and other workers engaged in the protection and development of modern coastal wetlands. The Holocene A scholarly and meticulously researched thesis, lavishly illustrated with maps, photographs and diagrams. It draws together diverse strands of evidence from archaeology, history and palaeoecology; in the process again demonstrating how essential a multi-disciplinary approach is for the understanding of human activity at the coastal fringe. Antiquity Provides a useful summation of the present state of knowledge of the coastal wetlands in the Roman and medieval periods. Landscape History
