Deserted Villages by Trevor Rowley

Book Description

Villages 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.

Archaeological Study of the Bayeux Tapestry by Trevor Rowley Archaeological Study of the Bayeux Tapestry, Hardback (October 2016)

There has been a renewed interest in the Bayeux Tapestry. Many aspects are being re-examined and new ideas emerging about the historical and artistic content. This is the only book to analyse the historical geography and archaeology of the Tapestry

Norman England by Trevor Rowley 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 by Trevor Rowley Normans, Paperback (July 2009)

The Normans were a relatively short-lived cultural and political phenomenon. They emerged early in the tenth century and had disappeared off the map by the mid-thirteenth century. Drawing on the archaeological and historical evidence, this title examines how the Normans were able to conquer and dominate significant parts of Europe.
