About This Book

Hunting has taken place in Britain for more than 700,000 years... Exploring sites such as Creswell Crags, Chatsworth House, Stafford Castle, Cheddar Gorge and the New Forest, Hunting in Britain examines the role of hunting through time and considers how it shaped the landscape as we know it. Bringing together for the first time evidence from the Palaeolithic to the modern era, and studying both the archaeology and history of hunting, this book provides a fresh understanding of man's complex relationship with the natural world. Hunting has been a critical and inescapable thread running throughout the full length of human occupation of the British Isles and remains significant, if at times controversial, today.
