There are in Britain over 2,000 archaeological sites - mostly prehistoric and Roman - that can be visited. They range in size from the faint indications of a partially ploughed out barrow ( ancient burial mound) to complete circuits of wall like those at the Saxon Shore fort of Pevensey. What the visitor needs, when wandering around an ancient site, is some background information which will bring the past to life. And here it is. Mono illustrations throughout.
