This glorious evocation of Northumberland in prehistory reflects Stan Beckensall's tireless exploration of the county and his deep understanding of its past. Woven together using evidence derived through fieldwalking, aerial photography, excavation and archival research, the very fabric of this book is vibrant with life. It is an account of the way in which the landscape has been used since hunter-gatherers first roamed the wilderness, how great changes were brought about by farming, and what we can interpret from the lasting remains of monuments, burials, settlements and defences. All of this evidence is used to paint a vivid picture of how the people of the county lived their lives.
