Bronze Age Landscapes: Tradition and Transformation by Joanna Bruck

This volume is a collection of essays, which exemplify the range and diversity of work currently being undertaken on the regional landscapes of the British Bronze Age and the progress which has been made in both theoretical and interpretive debate.
