Deserted Villages by Trevor Rowley
Book DescriptionVillages have been abandoned throughout history, and in every part of the British Isles. Some of them are former towns; others were only ever small hamlets. Many still await discovery. This book explains how villages have become deserted - often the result of disease and shrinking populations - and describes how the archaeologist recovers and interprets the evidence and shows how everyone can become involved in discovering and recording sites. Some good examples of sites worth visiting are included.

Norman England, Paperback (September 2010)
1066 is perhaps the most important date in English history. The elite Normans themselves brought England much closer to Continental Europe, and brought in novel styles of military training. This title explores their lifestyle and the ways in which they interacted with the Anglo-Saxon English as they changed the face of the country forever.
Normans, Paperback (July 2009)» View all books by Trevor Rowley
