The Heritage Handbook. An A-Z guide to the Archaeology and Landscape History of Northern Devon.

Northern Devon is famed for its natural beauty, which is generally
clear for all to see and celebrated for its history, which is often far less evident to the casual observer. This book sets out to explain what is known about the archaeology and landscape history of the area so that the reader will have a better appreciation of Northern Devon’s
long and colourful history, from the earliest evidence of human
occupation on the beach at Westward Ho! to the relics of World War
Two training on Braunton Burrows.

The handbook has mostly been written by John Bradbeer and Terry Green, with support and advice from other experts for North Devon and beyond. Nearly 200 pages in length and fully illustrated, it is
available for pre-order at a price of £10 for members of the society and £12.50 for non-members.
