Overview

With new archeological and historical evidence, this remarkable record examines the history of Hertfordshire from late prehistoric times through the 13th century. Detailed and extensively researched, this history examines the origins of the county and the early evolution of its landscape and explores the subtle and complex relationship between early territorial organization and natural topography.  Proving that Hertfordshire has a long and complex history and a rich archaeological heritage, this account emphasizes that developments in the remote past—especially from the Roman period through the time of the Norman Conquest—continue to shape its character and appearance.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Examines the history of Hertfordshire from late prehistoric times to the 13th century. Looks at the origins of the county and the early evolution of its landscape, and emphasizes the surprising extent of continuity in structures of territorial organization from the Roman period to the time of the Norman Conquest. Both archaeological and documentary sources are employed to throw new light on the history of this neglected county. Williamson teaches landscape history at the University of East Anglia. This series shows how individual shires emerged from the various environmental, social, and political circumstances of England's regions in the early Middle Ages. Distributed by Palgrave.
