the sheer breadth and depth of the evidence compiled and analysed in this volume – together with the skilful interleaving of original artwork – make this an essential and characterful atlas for anyone undertaking large-scale archaeological studies of England. The availability of a free digital edition is a welcome bonus’ – Mark McKerracher (2022): Medieval Settlement Research, Vol. 37

The book is certain to become a go-to reference guide for those working in archaeology and who need an overview of landscape information for particular periods. A must-have for cartophiles, it will also appeal to those with a broad interest in the periods covered. I hope the authors will consider producing future volumes covering the rest of the United Kingdom.’ – Andrew Tibbs (2022): Current Archaeology 386
