Prehistoric Northumberland


Best known for his studies of prehistoric rock art especially in Northumbria and cumbria, here Stan Beckensall presents a broader perspective on those that inhabited and exploited the Northumbrian region. Although Hadrian's Wall frequently steals the limelight, the earlier history of Northumbria comprises a pastiche of prehistoric ceremonial monuments, burial places, defences, settlements and examples of art. Beckensall's passion and enthusiasm for his subject is clear and this book represents `a welcome attempt to provide a synthesis that has been demanded by the Northumbrian public for several years' (from the Foreword). Includes a list of places to visit.
