"Shropshire - An Archaeological Guide" - Michael Watson (2002 Shropshire Books). 108pp.

General guidebook to Shropshire's archeaology, from the Bronze Age to Medieval town and church.

Nicely presented, with colour pics throughout. There are 14 Bronze Age sites (including Mitchell's Fold and Hoarstones circles) and 13 Iron Age sites covered. The Iron Age section features good aerial photos and plans of the principle hillforts in Shropshire.

The author was (is?) Head of Archaeology for Shropshire County Council.

Nice one tsc :-)

It's the kind of book every county could do with. I still ponder occasionally about having a searchable list/database of regional books as a TMA resource.
