Since it was first published in 1958, Joscelyne Finberg's classic text on the history and evolution of the village has rarely been out of print. Exploring Villages is about reading the life story of the village community from the evidence of roads, rivers, soil, hedges, buildings, records, even oral testimony. Anyone beginning the study of a local area will find this an indispensable guide, bringing together a wealth of information normally scattered in a number of specialist sources. Fully illustrated, with bibliographies and a detailed index.
