The Early Neolithic Architecture of the South Downs

Miles Russell


The primary aim of this volume is to summarize and assess for the first time all available primary evidence for the earliest forms of monumental architecture built within a geographically discrete area of the British Isles – the chalk landscapes of Central South-eastern England. This extremely detailed study includes all the significant mounds, land cuts, flint workings, and monumental architecture (4500-1500 BC) of the South Downs in context, including Blackpatch, Cissbury, and Harrow Hill.
