Major Publishing Event dedicated to the memory of Peter Drewett:
Archaeology and Landscape of South-East England to 1066 (eds Michael J Allen & David Rudling)
This is a new peer-reviewed book on archaeology of SE England, written by the recognised leading authorities in their field. It provides an overview and review of south-east England, allowing comparison with Sussex, Surrey and Kent (and the east Thames basin) which has rarely been achieved or attempted. It will also allow comparison within and between both the three counties, and the main topographic zones of Downs, Weald, Coastal Plain, River Valley and Thames Estuary.
The book will provide an informed narrative of an interpretation of the history of the south east and re-addresses, renews and re-evaluates the work and interpretations presented previously. It will be the new textbook for the South-East. As such we it hope provides a fitting tribute to the late Peter Drewett who inspired many in the current generation of archaeologists (professional and amateur) working in south-east England. Peter published a series of major excavations in Sussex and southern England 1974-82, and this book will be dedicated to Peter Drewett with great thanks, admiration and affection.
