The archaeological evidence presented in this book shows how travel has changed over the centuries. Simple earthworks have developed into modern cuttings and tunnels; fords have been superseded by bridges of all kinds; the buildings associated with road travel are no longer wayside inns and tollhouses, but car plants and service stations; and horse transport has been replaced by trams and buses. This authoritative yet elegantly written survey is the long-awaited companion volume to the author's The Archaeology of Railways.
