With new archeological and historical evidence, this remarkable record examines the history of Hertfordshire from late prehistoric times through the 13th century. Detailed and extensively researched, this history examines the origins of the county and the early evolution of its landscape and explores the subtle and complex relationship between early territorial organization and natural topography. Proving that Hertfordshire has a long and complex history and a rich archaeological heritage, this account emphasizes that developments in the remote past—especially from the Roman period through the time of the Norman Conquest—continue to shape its character and appearance.
