Product Description

by Richard Tipping

This book explores the many ways in which landscapes and the diverse environments within them change through time, focusing on the environmental history of the Bowmont valley in the northern Cheviot. It explains and uses scientific techniques, pollen analysis, the analysis of sediments and geomorphology, combining these with data from archaeological survey, to reconstruct these beautiful hills over the last 11,000 years and hopefully capture something of the experience of being in them and seeing them change through time.

The Society of Antiquaries of Scotland gratefully acknowledges funding towards the publication of this volume from Historic Scotland.
