Rabbits and Archaeology by Tom Williamson
Book DescriptionRabbit farming was an important industry in post-medieval times, and has left many traces in the modern landscape, the real significance of which has not always been recognised - leading to much confusion among archaeologists. The visible traces are 'pillow mounds' and other structures such as boundary banks and walls, vermin traps and tip traps, and warren lodges. These structures were often erected in close proximity to earlier archaeological sites such as hill forts or barrows, and have often been interpreted as features of prehistoric or Roman date. In addition earlier earthworks were often altered and adapted by warreners to serve as rabbit accommodation. In short, a fascinating and unusual aspect of archaeology, and the only full book on the subject by one of Britain's leading landscape archaeologists.
