Deserted Villages, Paperback Book

Deserted Villages Paperback

Part of the Shire Archaeology series


Villages have been abandoned throughout history, and in every part of the British Isles.

Some of them are former towns; others were only ever small hamlets.

Many still await discovery. This book explains how villages have become deserted - often the result of disease and shrinking populations - and describes how the archaeologist recovers and interprets the evidence and shows how everyone can become involved in discovering and recording sites.

Some good examples of sites worth visiting are included.
