About This Book
This book explores the development and nature of farming in Britain throughout the prehistoric period. Starting with the transition from the hunter-gatherer in the late neolithic/early neolithic, expert author Peter Reynolds traces the sequence of farming from the initial struggle to dominate the landscape to the full 'agroscope' of the late iron age. He presents both plantstock and livestock, as based upon the evidence from archaeological excavations with discussion of how these elements interact with one another and the implications they have for our understanding of prehistoric farming.

Much of the evidence for prehistoric agriculture, especially for the late iron age, has been subjected to experimental research at the Butser Ancient Farm Research Project in Hampshire. Many of the latest results of that research have been incorporated into the text enhancing theory with practical probability.
