Geology And Archaeology Of Berkshire: for people who aren't geologists or archaeologists

Geology and Archaeology

Berkshire contains places of great beauty, and a market town, Thatcham, that may be the longest continuously inhabited settlement in the British Isles.

Most books about the county's ancient human history (archaeology) and geology have been written by experts for experts, but this one is aimed at a wider readership: people who aren't professional scientists, but wish to learn more about an area to which humans and proto-humans have been coming for more than 430,000 years.

It tells visitors where to go and what to look for, with guided walks round interesting (and beautiful) places, details of significant sites and museums, 29 maps and diagrams, and 38 colour photographs.
