Through a synthesis of the findings of archaeological research the authors present the development of human culture in the region from before 300,000 BC. Their particular emphasis on economic archaeology enables them to uncover the region's trade and redistribution networks. These reveal the insular nature of much of the South East's development, despite its contacts with other parts of Britain and Europe. The authors discuss the producers of wealth - farmers, craftsmen, peasants, serfs and slaves - rather than those who simply manipulated it. They find continuity in the development of farming practice but a concomitant discontinuity in ceremonial and social organisation. Intensive development, road construction, and especially ploughing have destroyed many archaeological sites in South East England. Fortunately key sites have been saved by archaeologists working under rescue conditions. This book is written by three archaeologists who have attempted to follow research themes through their rescue archaeology. This, combined with the increasing refinement of archaeological recovery techniques, has resulted in a book which contains a wealth of new data and ideas. It will be widely welcomed by readers both in and out of the South East, and mark a further important addition to this distinguished series."; including index & bibliography - 384 pages.
