The Thames Valley offers one of the richest resources of archaeological data in the country
The third volume in the Thames through Time series takes the story from the end of the Iron Age and the Roman Invasion to the years before the Norman Conquest in the 11th century. This period witnessed considerable developments in settlement and farming, impacted by the hegemony of Roman rule, followed by the fall of the empire in the 5th century which led to rising urbanisation, trade and communication in the early medieval period.
The volume provides an up to date account of the changing environment of the valley, evolving settlement patterns, the identity, beliefs and culture of the valley’s inhabitants, their agriculture and industry, and the archaeology of power and politics in the region.
The volume can be purchased from Oxbow Books.
