352 pp, large 8vo (9 15/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0718144740 Profusely illustrated in colour and b&w with photographs, maps, reproductions. "Battlefields are the untold story of British archaeology. As the sites of events which too k place over hours rather than years, they have long been considered lacking in archaeological riches. However, recent pioneering work has shown that battlefields can provide dramatic revelations about the battle's course once the archaeol o g i s t s g e t digging beneath the surface. This is where Tony Pollard and Neil Oliver step in. As battlefield archaeologists they are in a unique position to challenge both the historical veiwpoint and contemporary eyewitness accounts. In (t hi s bo ok , th e y) v isit the sites of six major British battles (Shrewsbury, Barnet, Flodden, Newark, Culloden and the Firth of Forth) and carry out a full archaeological investigation of each. As they uncover artefacts abandoned in the heat an d c ha os of ba ttl e the y c losely follow the progress of each engagement and answer key historical questions, sometimes totally revising the accepted version of events. Each chapter is a fully framed investigation and follows an episode of the t elev isi on ser ies . B y usin g ar chaeology to unlock the secrets of the past, Tony and Neil prove that soldiers do not pass through fields of conflict like shadows, and in the process they show that battlefields are some of our most important na tiona l mo num ents ."
