Archaeology in Northumberland National Park
Through his work as an archaeologist for the Northumberland Park Authority, Paul Frodsham is better placed than most to appreciate the stunning landscape of Northumberland and the many prehistoric and historic sites that can be found there. This book, which is written for the general reader, successfully combines an overview of the archaeology of Northumberland National Park, from the Mesolithic to the present day, with a series of fourteen case studies or projects written by those carrying out research in the region. The papers are based on those given at a conference held in 2000, and reflect new research and ideas on a broad range of subjects, including `Peat, pollen and people' (Rob Young) , the Iron Age hillfort of West Hill (Peter Topping) . Hadrian's Wall (Tony Wilmott; Tim Gates) , Harbottle Castle (James Crow) , and the industrial landscape (Iain Hedley) .
