UK Moorland 1988 0861902483 / 9780861902484 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good Very Good Book 8vo - over 7 - 9 
The downlands of Wessex were the most densely -populated area of prehistoric and early historic Britain, traversed by roads and trackways ever since man first settled in the area. Wessex played an important role in early medieval times, so that its lines of communications were used by a wide spectrum of travellers, kings and commoners alike. Maps, diagrams and photographs supplement the detailed text which itself is based upon the author's research and experience of walking hundreds of miles through Wessex landscapes. The D/W shows signs of light sun fading on the spine and rippling to the D/W edges.
