This volume concerns the palaeo-environmental and archaeological investigations of the upper Allen Valley of Cranborne Chase, Dorset, between 1998 and 2003, which revealed sequences of landscape development which contrast with those previously put forward for the region. A programme of valley-wide geoarchaeological survey and palynological analyses of the relict palaeo-channel system was conducted, along with sample investigations and open area excavations of a variety of prehistoric sites in the area. Among the many excellent illustrations, GIS modelling techniques have been used to interrogate and visualise some of this new data which has provided possible independent corroboration.

About the Author

Charles French is Professor of Geoarchaeology at the University of Cambridge. For more than the past two decades his main research interests have centred around the application of archaeological techniques and micromorphological analytical techniques to the interpretation of buried landscapes, the processes responsible for the degradation of landscapes, and more recently on the interpretation of the use of domestic space on settlement sites.

Reviews

This important study establishes a more complex, and more satisfactory, model for chalkland ecology between the fifth and the first millennia BCE than has previously been available. It is likely to set the agenda for landscape research for some years to come.' -- The Holocene 18.8 The Holocene 18.8
