Bargain Silbury Hill Stockists

Silbury Hill the largest prehistoric mound in Europe has long been an enigma. Set within the chalk downlands of the Stonehenge and Avebury World Heritage Site it is traditionally thought to have been the burial place of King Sil. First investigated in 1776 then again in 1849 successive archaeological interventions culminated in Professor Richard Atkinson’s televised campaign in the late 1960s.Following the dramatic collapse of the 1776 excavation shaft at the summit of the Hill in 2000 detailed surveys revealed that voids associated with the earlier excavations existed deep within the mound. Mindful of potential damage to undisturbed archaeological features within Silbury Hill in 2007 the decision was taken to re-enter the Hill using Professor Atkinson’s tunnel and directly backfill all known and predicated voids. These remedial works were accompanied by full archaeological recording.This report discusses the resulting stratigraphical and palaeoenvironmental evidence as well as new radiocarbon dates and offers a re-interpretation of the construction of the Hill setting it in its late Neolithic context. It also details the later history of the site and conservation measures undertaken.Key Features:382 pagesHardbackPublished in 2014

McMorran & Whitby Stockists

McMorran & Whitby are arguably one of the most unsung practices of post-war British architecture. Led from the late 1950s by Donald McMorran and George Whitby two indisputable architectural heavyweights of the post-war era the practice willingly rejected the experimentalism and fleeting faddishness that characterised the dominant paradigm of the age and from which so many of Britain's towns and cities are still blighted. The practice can be seen as part of an evolution in British classical tradition with direct linkages through other eminent figures such as Sir Edwin Lutyens and E. Vincent Harris.Their work found notable...
