This book provides a fascinating and comprehensive overview of the great quarrying industry in Wales. Arranged as a field guide with sites grouped into geographical sections, it sets out the surviving archaeology on each, accompanied by brief historical notes to give context.


From the rear side cover: Now with 40 rather than 20 years of fieldwork and research behind it, this book includes much new material and information and hopefully eliminates some that was erroneous. Like the original, it is intended as a field guide with sites grouped into eographical sections, to set out the surviving archaeology on each, accompanied by brief historical notes to give context. Thus it is intended to be a brief but comprehensive overview of this great Welsh industry.

Please note there is an old price printed and a small price sticker, both on the rear side cover
