English Heritage Book of Avebury - MALONE, Caroline

B. T. Batsford, 1989, Paperback.
Condition: Very Good. A slightly warped copy. Text bright and tight.

First in this edition. From the introduction: “This book is about the great Neolithic monuments of Avebury. It describes the evolution of Avebury through its archaeological remains and its historical records. There are two main elements to this story: the first is the world of the people who constructed the major remains in and around Avebury, and who left their imprint indelibly on the landscape. The second is an account of the subsequent destruction and the reconstruction of the Neolithic world of Avebury, including the role of the Roman, Saxon and medieval occupants, and the awakening interest of antiquarians and archaeologists from the seventeenth century onwards.” Illustrated with B&W photographs.

Size: 9¾" x 7½". 141 pages.
