The Archaeology of Cornwall

£45.00

Product description

Time goes fast as we grow older, but this magnificent book slows down the clock. 

It offers moment of reflection as we contemplate the enormous eras of geological time and the stirring sights of our earliest ancestors' battles to survive in the toughest conditions of rock, sea and wind. We meet mysterious traders from overseas and see the exotic goods they brought. We gain insight into ideas about society and civilization that arrived two thousand years ago and resonate still. We watch the landscape develop as the farmers, fishermen and churchmen began to create it from moor and cove; and hear again the sound of the splitting of the living rock that delivered up so much wealth and left such hard times to the people of Cornwall. 

Caradoc Peters pioneers a new archaeology, building on the discovery of artefacts and the traces in the landscape to form a chronicle of our people. It is a major work which forms a pillar of understanding for all who value the past as the foundation of our futures.

Oxfam Shop Magdalen Street

Norwich Oxfam is exceptionally large for an Oxfam Shop and we sell a large array of homeware as well as all the usual goods that you would associate with Oxfam shops. We are situated on Magdalen Street, a bustling thoroughfare near to the Cathedral at the heart of a vibrant community and close to the centre of the East Anglian City of Norwich. It is easy to get to, as many of the bus routes (including Park & Ride) go past the shop. There are at least three large car parks and a local shopping centre within walking distance.
