DESERTED VILLAGES - Although most famously deserted as a result of the Black Death in the fourteenth century, villages have been abandoned throughout history, and in every part of the British Isles. Some of them are former towns, others were only ever small hamlets. Many still await discovery. This book explains how villages have become deserted, and describes how former houses, roads and fields can often still be recognised today. Describing how the archaeologist recovers and interprets the evidence and showing how everyone can become involved in discovering and recording sites, this book also suggests a number of sites worth visiting today.
