The Field Archaeology of Dartmoor describes and narrates Dartmoor’s landscape history from 4000 BC to the present, analysing and summarising archaeological and historical studies from the 19th century onwards.

A brief section describes Dartmoor’s geological shape. Then its prehistoric settlement, Romano-British organisation, medieval character and early tin industry are described in turn. Next, Dartmoor’s 19th- and 20th-century industrial landscape and heritage (tin, copper, silver-lead and China clay), and how they co-existed with traditional forms of upland farming, are described. Subsidiary industries (peat, gunpowder mills, ice works and tramways) and the moor’s use for military training bring the narrative up to the present. A concluding summary assesses Dartmoor’s history and ponders its future.

Contents:
  • Part One: Prehistoric Dartmoor
  • Part Two: The medieval and post-medieval landscape
  • Part Three: The industrial and military landscape
