The Ancient History of (south and north) Wiltshire

Written by Sir Richard Colt Hoare (1758-1833) who commissioned the careful and intensive excavation of the barrows of south Wiltshire by William Cunnington and his two assistants the Parker brothers.

Referring to the speculation by classical scholars of his day, he said
"We speak from facts not theory"

The book is available to look at and read at the Wiltshire Heritage Museum library.
