An Upland Biography : Landscape and Prehistory on Gardom's Edge, Derbyshire Paperback / softback


Gardom's Edge is an area of gritstone upland situated on the Eastern Moors of the Derbyshire Peak District.

Like other parts of the Eastern Moors, Gardom's Edge has long been renowned for the wealth of prehistoric field systems, cairns and other structures which can still be traced across the surface. Drawing on the results of original survey and excavation, An Upland Biography documents prehistoric activity across this area, exploring the changing character of occupation from the Mesolithic to the Iron Age.

It also tacks back and forth between local detail and regional patterns, to better understand the broader social worlds in which Gardom's Edge was set.
